Xavier University will lift the campus-wide indoor mask mandate on February 21, 2022. Bellarmine Chapel is part of the XU campus community, and we have followed the campus protocols since the start of the pandemic. This policy shift will trigger some changes to our current masking protocols:
- Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals attending Masses at Bellarmine Chapel beginning February 21.
- While masks are optional indoors, those attending parish Masses are welcomed and encouraged to continue wearing a mask. N95 and KN95 masks are widely available for parishioners with concerns about COVID-19. We will continue to provide surgical style masks at the main entrance before all parish Masses.
- Eucharistic ministers will continue to wear masks during Communion.
- Parishioners meeting individually or in small groups on campus can determine if they prefer to wear masks and ask those involved in the meeting to wear masks if needed.
