Required or Recommended - Masking in Church

My wife and kids are attending a Methodist Church in Baltimore County that requires the wearing of masks during the worship service. Most folks I know tell me that their churches are following a policy of personal choice regarding masks. If you attend church in Baltimore County, what's your church's policy regarding masks?

Not Baltimore Co, but just over the line in Southern York most churches that I know of are optional.

Methodists are "woke" these days, so it's just a virtue signal.

I’m not in MD, but locally there is indoor mask requirements.

Most folk here strip theirs off as soon as they enter or sit down.

The place is big. Mostly folks are separated / distanced

Lisbon UMC in Carroll Cnty. and mask's are optional.
Start having people complain to the SPRC and that will get around to the Admin. Board - then they will make the decision. Hopefully for personal choice.

Or they could make a decision based on the research on masks and their effectiveness against COVID. Wouldn't that be refreshing?

They are already working hard to get the "Science" in line with their opinion. Won't be long until the "Science is settled" and there will be no questioning the ability of a cloth mask to reduce transmission by 75%*








*we made this number up

I am assuming that is the Baltimore / Washington conference. I go to 2 different Methodist churches one requires it the other not so much. One is moms church about an hour away the other 5 minutes. I’m gonna say it’s the Pastors call. Although I do believe it is churches policy ( Methodist) to where a mask .

Yes, because the actual number is 0% effective....
