Covid Guidelines

Updated: 9/8/22

In consideration of the needs of the entire UFM community and the frequent presence of many elderly and medically fragile individuals, the following guidelines are currently in place for all attending UFM-hosted activities on our campus.

COVID-19 vaccination:

  • We strongly recommend that all who come to UFM for in-person worship or events be fully vaccinated.

  • Compliance with CDC guidance on boosters is encouraged.


  • Masking is required for in-person 9:30 Worship and while in the library.

  • Masking is strongly recommended for in-person 11AM Worship and for activities in the hallways, bathroom, kitchen and social hall. Masks can be removed while eating and drinking in the kitchen or social hall but remember that while socializing, 1-way masking helps lower transmission risk.

  • Singing with or without masks must be done outdoors.

  • We encourage members and attenders to wear N95 or a mask of comparable effectiveness.

Illness or testing positive for COVID-19:

  • If you have symptoms that might be related to COVID-19, please join us for 11AM worship on Zoom instead.

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, please attend via Zoom until you test negative on two sequential COVID home tests.

Since early 2020, University Friends Meeting established a Committee on Reopening Meeting (CoRM), to monitor the COVID-19 related situation,
propose appropriate risk reduction measures, and issue behavioral guidelines for member and attender use of the physical spaces at UFM.
