UUFA Response to COVID-19

Update!

As of September 2, 2021, the Fellowship will be monitoring the Story County COVID "positive test" rate via CovidActNow.org. If rates reach 15%, all in-person activities at the UUFA will immediately be transitioned to virtual only for the next 7 days. This will include Sunday services, religious education, all UUFA meetings/activities, and external party building use.

Determination will be made every Wednesday (noon) and shared immediately below, as well as via the Friday Weekly Email. The Fellowship office will make every effort to notify group activity leaders most impacted by short notice, but group leaders should always check CovidActNow.org or this page for updates on whether activities are happening or not.

Additional guidance on regathering has been developed and is available here.

Hybrid Platform Model

The UUFA has shifted to a hybrid platform model (offering gatherings both online & in-person simultaneously). Smaller UUFA committees & affinity groups (10 people or less) are currently welcome back to the building. Online meeting links for all gatherings will continue to be available, with video terminals available in the UUFA building to merge audiences. Leaders desiring meeting space in the building should make facility requests with the office.
