What's New

Since mid-May the New Castle County COVID Community Level has fluctuated between “high" and “medium.” When the level is “high,” Hockessin Friends Meeting will respond by requiring that all persons wear masks and by operating HEPA filters on full power. When the level is “medium” (or “low”), masks will be optional for vaccinated individuals, and HEPA filters will operate on half power. Signs will indicate the NCC community level and the relevant response.

The COVID Community Level for New Castle County is now high. Therefore, beginning on May 22, Hockessin Friends Meeting will hold in-person worship in front of the meetinghouse. In the event of inclement weather, in-door in-person worship will be held, but all individuals will be expected to wear masks, social distancing will be practiced, and HEPA filters will operate.

At the conclusion of worship, coffee and limited food items will be available for outdoor consumption. Social distancing will be expected during worship and social hours.
