On the CDC Update

Episcopate Parishes in The United States
June 1, 2021

To the Reverend Clergy, Monastics, and Faithful of the Episcopate:

Christ is risen!

In The United States, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has
updated its recommended
protocols concerning the use of masks. Essentially, masks are no longer
mandated for those persons who *have been fully vaccinated.* This means
that those who have received their final Covid vaccination (one or two,
depending on the vaccine) no longer need to wear masks indoors or outdoors,
in large or small groups or gatherings, and without concern for social
distancing.
Concerning attendance at liturgical events, if those who are fully
vaccinated wish, they might also consider continuing to wear masks for
their own comfort and out of respect for others. The CDC also recommended
and advised that *those who are not fully* *vaccinated* continue to wear
masks for the time being in order to protect themselves and others from
potential exposure.
*Please refer to your State and local government regulations with regard
to the implementation of these new protocols. *
There are some gray areas within the CDC guidelines that raise concern. One
of these is that there is no realistic way to monitor this new
provision, i.e. to determine who has or hasn’t yet been vaccinated. This
is a personal matter which many would not want to share. In the parish
context, this puts our clergy in the position of monitoring something which
is impossible to monitor. Individual parishioners and families should
monitor themselves regarding whether to wear a mask or not, while keeping
in mind to respect others in the parish.
We hope we are seeing an end to the pandemic and to a return to a more
normal way of life. As we anticipate the Ascension of our Lord and the Holy
Pentecost, we ask that our clergy, monastics, and faithful continue to
live in the spirit of mutual love, support, and cooperation and with the
fidelity to Christ that you have all exhibited throughout these many
months.

Yours in the Risen Lord,

+NATHANIEL,
Archbishop of Detroit
The Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America
A Diocese of the Orthodox Church in America
