Mask Requirements – Update

UPDATE ON MASKING REQUIREMENTS AS OF MARCH 2, 2022

Because of a change in requirements by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, the Diocese of San Jose is also making a change as of March 2, 2022.

Please take note of the following policy, which applies to all parish gatherings, including worship:

  • Anyone who prefers to wear a mask may continue to do so.
  • Masks are not required but encouraged regardless of vaccination status.
  • Liturgical ministers, out of an abundance of caution and respect for human life, are strongly encouraged to wear a mask when they are carrying out their ministry less than six (6) feet from another person.
  • Doors and windows are to stay open to allow for maximum ventilation during indoor Masses and gatherings.
  • Anyone who has symptoms or has been exposed to the virus is asked not to attend.
  • When serving food, avoid using self-serve options. Preferable options include designating someone to serve attendees or offering individually packaged food.
