Saint John's Church COVID-19 Protocols

For everyone’s safety, especially for our staff, we have new protocols in place.  You cannot enter the office if you have any symptoms (temperature, cough, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, exhaustion) or have been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19 in the past 14 days.  Click on  St. John's Health Questionnaire   which must be signed at the door.  If you know that you will answer yes to any of the questions, PLEASE do not come in.  The office phone is 914 963 3033.  Mother Vicki's office phone is 914 969 2969. Thank you.office hours are by appointment. 

I know this is a very difficult time for everyone.  However, the extreme contagion of the virus and the fact that the numbers keep climbing mean that if we love each other, we must remain vigilant. 


UPDATED COVID-19 INFORMATION

All New York State mass vaccination sites will open to eligible New Yorkers for walk-in vaccination on a first-come, first-serve basis for all. The walk-in appointments are reserved for first doses only—second-dose appointments will be scheduled immediately after New Yorkers receive their first dose. This new approach means any eligible New Yorker age 16 and older will be able to walk into any mass vaccination site and walk out with a shot in arm, eliminating the need to make an appointment online or phone.

Know your rights as a rent voucher holder!

Since 2019, it is illegal for landlords and real estate brokers in New York State to refuse to show and/or rent apartments to people because they receive government assistance to pay their rent. In other words, you cannot be treated differently by a broker or landlord simply because you use a voucher to cover some or all of your rent. While this form of discrimination is very common, it is often difficult to detect because it is not always explicit. Please click here to continue reading Know your rights!
