Here is AIIA’s coronavirus policy statement for the third quarter (July-August-September) of 2021.
AIIA remains fully committed to participating in the effort to conquer the coronavirus pandemic here in America as per current Federal CDC and State of Maine guidelines. The space inside our Study Center remains limited, but having noted significant progress in the battle against COVID here in Maine in the second quarter, our updated policies for the third quarter are as follows:
• AIIA’S STUDY CENTER IN MONSON, MAINE, REMAINS OPEN to a maximum of three drop-in visitors at a time. We’ll welcome you warmly but unless you are fully vaccinated please expect to wear a face mask. If you are not feeling well, are experiencing COVID-type symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing, loss of taste), or have been with anyone displaying such symptoms during the previous 14 days, we ask that you do not visit the Study Center.
• FAITH MATTERS events currently remain scheduled for the first Saturday of every month in 2021. During July, August, and September of 2021 guests will be welcomed to FAITH MATTERS events by reservation only. So be sure to call ahead. This will ensure our ability to enforce recommended protocols and provide appropriate distancing in our meeting place. Please also expect to wear a face mask unless you are fully vaccinated. If you are not feeling well, are experiencing any COVID-type symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing, loss of taste), or have been with anyone else displaying such symptoms during the previous 14 days, we ask that you do not attend Faith Matters events.
• PLEASE NOTE that — as a rule — we are not accepting speaking engagements during the third quarter of 2021.
• WE WELCOME ALL INTERESTED constituents and friends (regardless of worldview) to be in touch with us by phone (207.997.3644) or e-mail (AIIAInstitute@aol.com) at any time. We try to respond to all e-mails, phone calls, and surface (USPS) mail in a timely manner.
