FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Sequoyah United Methodist Church in Fayetteville says it is reinstating a mask mandate in all worship services.
The church posted the update on Facebook Saturday, July 17.
Church officials said this is because two people tested positive for COVID-19 after attending last week’s 11 a.m. service.
The church is also pausing all children’s activities, including the nursery and children’s church.
Sequoyah UMC said in a statement, “Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of all our members and guests, especially the children under 12 who are unable to be vaccinated at this time.”
KNWA/Fox 24 reached out to the church for further comment multiple times Sunday, but did not hear back.
