COVID: Mask Mandate Extended

 

In the light of the continued growth in the numbers of new COVID cases, Cardinal Seán is extending the current mask mandate. It is mandated that that throughout the archdiocese all people attending public Masses, including weddings and funerals, wear masks. This is an extension of the mandate currently in effect, and expires on Thursday, March 3, 2022, which is the day after Ash Wednesday.  Mass celebrants, deacons, readers, servers, choir members, and instrumentalists, must all wear masks except when they are speaking. Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks. Children under the age of two should not wear masks. In addition, all churches must continue to provide a designated area in which social distancing is respected for those who want to use it. Parishes should have masks available for people inasmuch as possible.

COVID: Mask Requirements and Guidance

December 9, 2021 corona@rcab.org From the Pandemic Response Team: In the light of spiking numbers of new COVID cases and the likely increase in those numbers in the upcoming holiday season, Cardinal Seán is mandating that throughout the archdiocese all people attending public Masses, including weddings and funerals, wear masks. This mandate takes effect the weekend of December 18/19, 2021, and expires on January 17, 2022. Mass celebrants, deacons, readers, servers, choir members, and instrumentalists, should all wear masks except when they are speaking. Children under the age of five are not required to wear masks. Children under the age of two should not wear masks. In addition, all churches must continue to provide a designated area in which social distancing is respected for those who want to use it. Parishes should have masks available for people inasmuch as possible, as some people attending especially on Christmas may not be expecting to need masks.

COVID: Guia y Requerimientos para el uso de Máscaras

Debido al aumento en el número de casos nuevos de COVID y un posible aumento aun mayor en la ya cercana temporada navideña, el Cardenal Seán ha pedido que en todas las parroquias de la arquidiócesis todas las personas que asistan a las misas publicas, incluyendo bodas y funerales, usen cubrebocas. Esta obligación entra en vigor el fin de semana del 18 y 19 de diciembre de 2021 y expira el 17 de enero de 2022. Los celebrantes de las misas, diáconos, lectores, monaguillos y miembros del coro deben usar cubrebocas, excepto cuando están hablando. Los niños menores de cinco años no están obligados a usar cubrebocas. Los niños menores de dos años no deben usar cubrebocas. Además, todas las iglesias deben continuar proporcionando un área designada en la que se respete el distanciamiento social para aquellos que quieran usarla. Las parroquias deben tener cubrebocas disponibles para las personas en la medida de lo posible, ya que es posible que algunas personas que asisten especialmente en Navidad a misa no sepan que necesitan usar mascaras.
