COVID 19 UPDATES

As we navigate this COVID-19 pandemic, we are in a unique position as a Faith Community. We have the opportunity to use what power we have to put into action our principles, practice and model physical distancing and do our part to continue and slow the spread of COVID-19. This is our responsibility to our community and our obligation to each other.

 

We have moved all Sunday services and groups online.

We know our congregations are not our buildings, but our people.

 

Essential Building Use Guidelines

First, our building is still closed.
 
The Albany UU Board has provided guidance to the Ministries and Operations Team to consider limited use of our building under specific circumstances. An application form, process and more information will be forthcoming. We appreciate your patience. Please continue to follow the guidelines outlined below.
 
These guidelines govern building use deemed necessary to the work of the congregation. The procedure is as follows:
 
  1. All members and friends must receive pre-clearance from staff (at this point, Tammy: admin@albanyuu.org) before entering the building. This will enable staff to schedule those who need to enter the building so that there is minimal overlap among individuals. The assumption is that these visits will be brief.
  2. Each individual (including staff) needs to fill out a short health survey prior to or immediately upon entry of the building, each time they enter. The survey is available online (preferred) and will be in paper form at the membership desk if needed.
  3. All members, friends and staff must wear a mask while in the building.
  4. Members and friends will please limit the duration and frequency of time spent in the building.
