  5. RRUUC Sunday services continue to require mask wearing in the Sanctuary,  RRUUC committee, task force, and other regularly scheduled group meetings and events planning to meet indoors are now mask optional. However, given the variability in risk perception among RRUUC members and friends, indoor meeting and event organizers are strongly encouraged to consider mask wearing in relation to those participants who perceive themselves at highest risk from exposure.  We are a caring community that strives to address the needs of all of us.  
  6. Food and liquid refreshments are now permitted within the buildings. Providing participants space to consume food and beverages outdoors as well as indoors is highly recommended to allow individual participants to self-select where they choose to eat and drink based on their perceived risk of exposure.
