Regarding Face Masks

Covering one’s face during Mass, though it may seem an inconvenience, is a helpful measure and an act of love to decrease the probability of spreading infection. We want to take all the measures outlined by our Diocese to minimize the risks to all members of our gathered community.
Please remember to keep the face mask on and over both your mouth and your nose when you are talking to one another before and after Mass. Masks are to be worn even during the week, even when you’re by yourself or alone with your own group. Speaking, singing, sneezing, and coughing are all events when numerous aerosol droplets are expelled, and these droplets can contain infectious germs. Remember: almost half of the transmissions of covid occur from people when they are pre-symptomatic.
