COVID Guidance Update

The CDC has updated their guidance that, “If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic,” including the removal of masks and social distancing both outdoors and indoors.

The State of Maryland has also removed all masking and social distancing mandates and highly encourages unvaccinated individuals to mask and distance.

With these latest updates from the CDC and Maryland, we are working hard at Cornerstone to update our practices to reflect these changes. We are about to go through a lot of changes as we progress towards normal operations. Please extend grace and compassion toward those around you and focus on Jesus, not protocols.
