Everyone in the United States has been affected by the COVID-19 virus pandemic; the Congregational Summer Assembly (CSA) was directly impacted because the CSA Board of Trustees voted not to open the CSA in the summer of 2020. The Board of Trustees is happy to open the CSA for the 2021 season. While vaccinations across the country have made an impact, we don’t know what we don’t know. One thing we do know is that COVID has not “disappeared.” We each have a role to play in keeping ourselves and our family members safe, as we have done for more than a year. As we all know, each of us is primarily responsible for our own health and the health of any minors in our family.
While the CSA will take steps in accordance with the state and county health guidance, the CSA cannot be a guarantor of your or your family’s safety from COVID. You are ultimately responsible for your safety and people will differ in what feels safe. Since we cannot know everyone’s vaccination status, we ask that non-vaccinated individuals follow any State of Michigan indoor mask requirement. We fully understand and support anyone who chooses to wear a face mask, and we ask that everyone do the same.
ACCORDINGLY, BY YOUR AND YOUR FAMILY’S PARTICIPATION IN CSA ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: LESSONS, COMMITTEE MEETINGS, SPIRITUAL GATHERINGS, CLASSES, CAMPS (SUCH AS ECOLOGY FUN) OR LECTURES (“CSA ACTIVITIES”) IN 2021, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SUCH PARTICIPATION IS VOLUNTARY AND IS UNDERTAKEN AT YOUR AND YOUR FAMILY’S OWN RISK WITH RESPECT TO COVID.
