In light of the recent update of CDC guidelines regarding fully vaccinated people not wearing masks, and in accord with the recent news release from Archbishop Hartmayer, moving forward those who have been fully vaccinated will not be required to wear masks at Mass or other parish events whether indoors or outdoors.
As the Archbishop’s statement notes, we will not require proof of vaccination from those not wearing masks. Here follows a portion of the press release from the Archbishop:
“ In light of this update, the Archdiocese of Atlanta will continue to recommend masks at Masses, but will give pastors discretion to allow vaccinated people to remove them. Those who are not vaccinated should still wear a mask. We will have to rely on peoples’ honesty, as we cannot ask for their personal health information.”
