Discussion Items

  • Reopening review of BUUF’s physical spaces focusing on small group gatherings

The consensus of the Board was that nothing has materially changed with the situation: therefore, continue as-is for the foreseeable future with the building being closed except for essential services and workers/staff and only as needed.

To reiterate the prior decision, this means that:

  • worship services will continue to be held online only;
  • for BUUF business: online meetings will continue to be endorsed;
  • BEC and other non-BUUF groups: no events will be booked – indoor or outdoor.

The decision will be reviewed at each monthly Board meeting and timelines may be revised as deemed appropriate based on the state of the pandemic in our local community. The Board’s decision may differ from local, state, and/or federal guidelines and from what other places are doing due to the unique nature of BUUF’s physical spaces and the people that may use them; we are keeping our most vulnerable congregants in mind.
