Survey Questions for New Guideline Implementation
As you know, a few days ago the CDC introduced new guidelines that those who are fully vaccinated may now be indoors, in public spaces, without a mask. As of Wednesday, May 19, our local governing authorities are implementing this new guideline in our city.
Out of an abundance of caution, as we seek to care for one another well, REH is taking a couple weeks to process these new changes before implementing the new guidelines in our Sunday worship services. Pastor Justin has sought advice from other Redeemer pastors, has listened to the concerns of multiple congregants, and Monday night the REH elder board gathered together to process these changes. Ultimately, the final piece of this process is: we want to hear from you.
Please take a moment to fill out this questionnaire below as we survey the entire congregation to get an idea of everyone’s comfortability concerning these new guidelines. After we receive the results of the survey, REH leadership will reconvene next week to move forward with a final decision on implementations. Until this final decision is made, no changes will be put into effect concerning mask-wearing in worship services.
Additionally, here is a relevant Q&A on precautions, post-vaccine, from the W.H.O. website:
Can we stop taking precautions after being vaccinated?
While a COVID-19 vaccine will protect you from serious illness and death, we still don’t know the extent to which it keeps you from being infected and passing the virus on to others. To help keep others safe, continue to maintain at least a 1-meter distance from others, cover a cough or sneeze in your elbow, clean your hands frequently and wear a mask, particularly in enclosed, crowded, or poorly ventilated spaces. Always follow guidance from local authorities based on the situation and risk where you live.
Philippians 2:3-4, Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
