Thank you for all this information—which could have been sent to us as emails and referenced at a more opportune time. I am much more concerned with the practical and emergency issue of vaccine availability. What/where is the hangup?

If churches are considered essential now, does that also make church staff/employees essential workers, and therefore moved up in the vaccination schedule? I gathered from what you said that it is still unclear at this time?

We are a church that shares our building with a school. Do we plan for vaccines with the school employees or clergy (which is in development still)?

How about singing with masks?
Jeff Alexander
46:26
What is the affect on the rollout of vaccine considering percentage of people refusing to accept it?
Tim Byrne
47:28
So for congregant singing, with masks on, it is still recommended at least 25 ft. apart?

If it’s helpful to others…. We put UV disinfecting lights in our HVAC systems and run the fans in the systems continuously to try and keep the air clean.

Hi, if my congregation rents space to several groups, one of them being another church, is my congregation responsible for these groups?
