COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Last week, the Governor eased occupancy restrictions due to
COVID-19 from 25% to 50% capacity for bars and restaurants.
This new level of occupancy went into effect on September 21, Permitted is up to 50% of normal seating capacity in the
Church if social distancing can be maintained during Mass.
The Diocese follows State guidelines for all other gatherings.
Indoor gatherings are still 25 or fewer and outdoor gatherings
are 250 or fewer.
As a reminder, all Parish events must have an accompanying
safety plan that must be submitted to Monsignor Larry Kulick,
Diocesan Administrator, at least one month prior to announcing the event. Please view the latest guidelines by visiting
www.stannerostraver.org/Diocesan News.

DUE TO THE RECENT NATURAL DISASTERS, including Hurricanes Laura & Sally and the western wildfires, many
people of these affected regions are in need of humanitarian
and material assistance. As COVID-19 limits our ability to
provide the needed funds by taking up a special collection,
please visit https://www.catholiccharitiesusa.org/ways-to-give/
