August 6, 2021 — As you have heard, the Delta variant of COVID 19 has spread rapidly through the US – and Forsyth county is regarded as a high transmission area.  The Delta Variant is far more contagious and dangerous than the original version we dealt with last year.

In keeping with the CDC guidance and the guidance from our Provincial Elders Conference, the Trinity Moravian Church Board has decide to temporarily impose additional safety measures in our worship setting, to protect one another and those who cannot be immunized, especially children under 12 and those with suppressed immune systems.

We will continue to worship in person, with live webcasting for those who must stay at home.  But for the next few weeks, we will ask everyone to wear a mask or face covering while in the sanctuary, whether you are vaccinated or not.  We will continue social distancing.  We will temporarily suspend congregational singing, and most music will be instrumental.  The Board will meet the first Sunday in September to review the situation.

If you are not fully vaccinated*, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.  If you have questions or want to know more about the Delta variant and why we have taken these measures, please watch the next video on our website, which goes into greater detail.
