Genito continues to follow Covid-19 safety guidelines from the CDC and the state of Virginia. In July 2021, the CDC announced that to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, vaccinated as well as unvaccinated individuals should wear a mask indoors in public in areas of substantial or high transmission. The Presbytery of the James responded with a similar recommendation. Powhatan County was listed as an area of high transmission in August 2021, so the Session is encouraging that everyone gathering inside the church wear a mask to protect themselves and others.
