ASC Reopening Task Force – Notes from Meeting March 4, 2021


All – Mark calendars for next meeting, April 29th at 5:00.

Attendees: George Carvill, Peter Gibbons, Jamie Gibson, Leslie Kinney, Steve Squires, Rev. Telos Whitfield

This was our first meeting since November, at which time we hashed out guidelines for the Holiday Bazaar. Since then, although vaccinations are rapidly being administered, it is too early to make any changes. Neither the State of Vermont nor the UUA guidelines have changed in any way that affects us.

Peter updated us on the science, which actually looks very promising.  The caution is that vaccination can be a long process. The Moderna shots require four weeks between shots and two weeks after the second shot for full immunization. The Pfizer shot is three weeks between shots and two weeks after. It will be a few months yet before the vaccine rollout includes all age groups and all reach full immunization.

We discussed two upcoming events: the spring CleanUp day scheduled for April 17th, and the Welcome Spring fair on April 24th. We recommended that the board adopt the same guidelines used for the Holiday Bazaar in December.  Leslie will present this to the board.
