Due to the rise of Coronavirus infections in Hampden and many other counties in Massachusetts and considering recent recommendations from the CDC, the Re-Entry team has decided to temporarily require that all persons, unvaccinated and vaccinated, wear masks during worship services in the sanctuary and at meetings in the Buxton Room. Services will continue to be live-streamed. Masks will continue to be provided at the door if needed. The Re-Entry Team will continue to monitor CDC recommendations and reevaluate the situation at our next meeting scheduled for September 8, 2021. -Mora Geoffrion, Chairperson
