SLC's COVID Guidelines
Effective March 24, 2022
Dear Spiritual Life Center Members & Friends,
SLC Board of Trustees appreciate all the comments and input provided at the last February 6th Community Meeting regarding SLC's current COVID policy. Please continue to provide your input by emailing the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Board's regular fourth Thursday meeting on February 24th, the Board adopted the February 16th Sacramento County Order and rescinded the mandate for fully vaccinated individuals to wear facemasks indoors. SLC COVID policies were changed effective February 24th to be in alignment with Sacramento County's February 16th Health Order.
On February 28th, the State of California Department of Public Health issued new facemask guidance rescinding mandate for unvaccinated individuals to mask indoors. Instead the State of California strongly recommends that facemasks be worn indoors regardless of one's vaccination status. (Click below for full February 28th State of California Facemask Guidance.)
Therefore, at the Board's regular fourth Thursday meeting on March 24th, the Board adopted the February 28th State of California COVID facemask guidance. In addition, the Board voted to comply with any future Sacramento County COVID guidance and directed Staff to make all COVID guidance changes based on effective dates provided by the County or State.
For your convenience, SLC has provided links above for FREE COVID-19 home test kits and also for FREE digital COVID-19 Vaccine Records so you can easily show your vaccination or booster status.
See additional details of SLC's most current COVID guidelines as of March 24th, 2022.
SLC's COVID GUIDELINES (Adopted by SLC's Board of Trustees at their March 24, 2022 regular monthly board meeting.)
Effective March 24, 2022 , the requirement that unvaccinated individuals mask in indoor public settings will move to a strong recommendation that all persons, regardless of vaccine status, continue indoor masking.
The universal masking requirement for K-12 and childcare settings has also been terminated. CDPH also strongly recommends that individuals in these settings continue to mask in indoor settings.
The restriction on Community Soup/Salad meals or potlucks has been lifted as of March 24, 2022.
No social distancing, pre-registrations, or additional testing for music team is required for Sunday Experiences. According to the State of California, the most preventive measure strongly recommended is wearing of facemasks indoors.
SLC Board has changed its February 24th guidelines from facemasks required indoors for unvaccinated individuals and facemasks optional indoors for vaccinated individuals to their newly adopted March 24th COVID guideline that strongly recommends facemasks indoors regardless of vaccination status. Therefore, SLC will continue to provide facemasks at the entrances to our courtyard and into our buildings.
Please note that SLC staff and volunteers are still asked to not come to the Center if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. On-site rapid test kits are available at SLC primarily for staff and core volunteers if they should have any signs of COVID symptoms before they can be lab tested to attend work or a Sunday Experience.
SLC continues to offer live-streaming of our 9 am and 11 am services on YouTube and on Facebook.
Thank you for holding us in prayer and affirming that our community is a safe, vibrant, loving family that accepts everyone - no exceptions. We are grateful to be able to gather both on-site and online for our live Sunday Experience and for our many small groups and educational classes.
Your SLC Board and Staff love and miss all our SLC family members. We are grateful that we know that all is continuously unfolding for all our highest good. We thank you for going within and determining what is the best course of action for your own health and well-being. We ask that that all who come to our Center, for the safety of themselves and others, respect and adhere to SLC's current COVID policy which is in alignment with state and county COVID guidance.
We look forward to seeing you in-person or online. Thank you for supporting our mission to Transform Lives as We Love, Serve, and Remember.
Peace and Blessings,
Rev. James Trapp & SLC's Board of Trustees
