HCT Makes Way for PRG (Post-COVID Re-entry Group)
The work of our Healthy Church Team has come to an end. As part of recent guidance received from the Virginia Conference, Shady Grove has formed the PRG or Post-COVID Re-entry Group, a group of program-ministry leaders who are working to help move Shady Grove forward into an exciting time of ministry and mission.

The development of the PRG along with the latest Governor's executive orders, are paving the way for progress that we know Shady Grovers are eager to experience.

What You Need to Know:
1. Masks are no longer required for persons who are fully vaccinated.  If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so.  If you are not fully vaccinated, you are still required to wear a mask. 
2. We are encouraging 3ft of social distance whenever possible.  This is inline with the VA Conference's best practices for individuals gathering in a congregant setting. 
3. Please stay home if you are sick. You will be asked to acknowledge health questions each time you enter the building. 
4.  During the height of the pandemic, we upgraded our HVAC  to include ionization air quality units, this will help to provide the most healthy air in our building. 
5. Food is only allowed on a limited basis.  You can bring your own food and consume it yourself.  Any other food brought in from the outside must come from a health department certified vendor.  We are not able to have pot luck type gatherings at this time, we are not allowed to have communal gatherings around coffee pots or food.
