The Riverside Church in the City of New York takes the COVID-19 virus threat seriously and our top priority is to safeguard the health and safety of each member of our staff, congregation, tenants, visitors, and guests. Riverside is committed to following the benchmarks, guidelines, and recommendations from the State of New York, New York City, CDC, and other experts in any decisions we make about re-opening. Riverside will not re-open until we have confirmation from state and local governments that it is safe to do so. When we do re-open, we will prioritize community need and re-open in phases that adhere to any and all public restrictions and accepted best practices. In the meantime, we will continue to provide robust online content that fosters connection and strengthens faith in these uncertain times, while also providing critical social services to our local communities in the safest ways possible.
