March 13, 2020 – As the situation with the COVID-19 Coronavirus rapidly develops, and congregations make decisions about whether to proceed with activities, the CUC team offers you our support and some resources to help as we navigate this together. As communities of faith, we can play significant roles in helping to prevent the spread of infection, in providing a calm and reasoned presence, and in modelling safe practices.
The CUC’s National Conference
The decision has been regretfully made to cancel the National Conference in May in Halifax. In light of the rapidly evolving situation, we, together with the UU Church of Halifax Host Team, feel that holding a gathering in these times is not a safe situation. This is in line with the just-announced recommendation from the Nova Scotia government to limit gatherings to 150 people.
The CUC has additional information concerning COVID-19. Specific resources for congregations are available.
