Following the guidance of the State ofNew York and recommendation from the CDC, Bishop DiMarzio has issued the following guidelines:
- Our Churches may open to full 100% capacity. There is no longer any need to rope off a pew between the occupied rows. Social distancing is still required for those who are not vaccinated. Unvaccinated parishioners should distance themselves from others who are not members of the same household.
- Hand hygiene is still required and disinfectant use should be encouraged.
- For those who are not vaccinated, masks are still mandatory in Church. However, everyone is encouraged to wear masks while in Church.
