Face mask required

All public buildings, sacred sites and grounds are now open to the public. Because Vigo County is currently classified as an area of substantial community transmission of COVID-19 and because of the spread of the Delta variant, current CDC guidelines recommend wearing a well-fitted mask in all indoor public spaces.

To comply with CDC guidelines, all visitors, sisters and staff are required to wear a properly-fitted mask in all indoor public spaces until further notice.

These areas include the following:

  • Providence Spirituality & Conference Center, O’Shaughnessy Dining Room, Linden Leaf Gifts and the Foley Room
  • Church of the Immaculate Conception, Blessed Sacrament Chapel, Shrine of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, Saint Anne’s Shell Chapel, Log Cabin Chapel and Lodge
  • Farm Store at White Violet Center
  • All office areas, breakrooms, meeting spaces and hallways
  • Providence Hall [The upper floors of Providence are private residential areas, so sisters need not wear masks there. Staff members who go to the 2nd or 3rd floor for any reason should, however, wear masks.]
