- The leader must keep a list of all attendees for contact tracing purposes.
- Masks are currently optional.
- Bathroom use should be limited. (Wipe down surfaces after your visit).
- No shared materials are permitted.
- NO food or drink.

Online and off-campus meetings need to be on the church calendar to be reported to the District Offices.
All events run by the Fairfax County school year, so it is time to renew your ongoing meetings.
Please take a moment to check here. If your meeting is not listed, it's time to request a time for the next school year (through June 2022.)
PUMC members may add events to the Church calendar. Log onto MyPenderPage, find "Events" on the menu bar, then "Calendar".
On the right top, click on "Add Event" to add it to the Pending Calendar. You will get an email when your event is approved. You cannot add an event to a room that is already reserved for another meeting.
