Guidance for Indoor Worship
February 12, 2021
Although the number of active COVID-19 cases statewide has declined in recent weeks, NH UCC cautions all churches against indoor worship through March 21 (extended from February 16). South Church has prepared plans for distanced, in-person worship when conditions allow (see South Church tab below). In the meantime, you may find tools described and linked below helpful in monitoring current conditions.
ActNow uses five indicators (new cases, infection rates, positive test rates, ICU capacity, and contact tracers) to track overall COVID risk, which is categorized into one of four levels from critical to low. Indicators can be displayed over time for both states and counties.
This tool synthesizes reported COVID-19 geographic case data and rapidly evolving scientific research to help you ballpark how much risk this disease poses to you.
The NH United Church of Christ offers resource pages for its churches. Portions of the site are updated infrequently, but the conference minister's guidance for local churches has been updated regularly since October.
The South Church reopening committee has created its own COVID-19 monitoring report for the church's membership area. Updated weekly, it will help us determine when to consider offering distanced, in-person services as a Sunday worship option. Learn more about the committee's recommendations using the button below.
The church building is temporarily closed to visitors, but our staff is available to help — contact us.
