Meanwhile, the UUSA Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to change the COVID-19 Building Use Policy to “mask optional” in most of the sanctuary when the risk level is low. The new policy will become effective with our first in-person service on August 6, 2023.

A “mask required” area will be maintained on the balcony, next to the windows.  Masks are always welcome.  We look forward to seeing you!

Our new policy will depend on weekly tracking of wastewater using BioBot Analytics COVID-19 website. If wastewater tests remain below 1000 copies/mL in Hampshire County, the UUSA will remain in Low or Green risk level and continue as “mask optional”. If the risk level increases above that level, we will move to “mask required” or more stringent limits, if necessary.  For details, please see the revised policy here:
