Update from the Covid Committee 

March 24, 2021

The COVID Committee of FCCW has been meeting on a regular basis during the past year to
evaluate the status of the COVID pandemic and how it effects the usage of our church building.
Our goal has been “ to do no harm” to those using our building for worship or other activities.
We have used the up to date information from the State of NH COVID website, CDC, as well as
recommendations from the NH Conference of UCC in guiding our decisions as to when our
building will be open again. Our first priority is to open the church building for worship and
then evaluate opening for other groups to use the facilities.

Our current guidelines for reopening our sanctuary with COVID precautions are 1) 70% of the
population is vaccinated, 2) the 7-Day average Test Positivity percentage is below 3%, and 3) if
there are no significant new risks from any of the new variant strains of the COVID-19 virus.
Wolfeboro and Carroll County currently have not met any of these guidelines. We are hopeful
that with continued COVID vaccinations and testing, that we will consider a modified usage of
our church building this summer or fall if the above guidelines are met.

There is much to look forward to in the coming weeks and months as we cautiously return to a
new normal.
