COVID-19 UPDATE: February 1, 2022

Per the lifted mask mandate as of 1/31/22, we are no longer requiring everyone over two years old to continue to wear a mask while indoors in public spaces. The mask mandate expired on Monday 1/31/22 in the wake of improving COVID-19 metrics. You can read more about this decision here.

We encourage those who would prefer to continue wearing masks to do so in our gatherings. You can read more about our decision to comply with county orders as they relate to masking here. As always, thank you for understanding as we continue to manage a complex and ever evolving situation. If you have any questions please email

Bay Area is committed to providing gatherings that encourage you and help you stay connected to each other, the church and most importantly Jesus; whether at home or in person. Listed below are the steps we are taking to keep you safe, as well as tips and resources to help during this time. Additionally, you can read more about Anne Arundel County's guidelines here, and more about our guiding principles for navigating cultural tensions here.


Per Anne Arundel County Health Department's most recent announcement, face masks are not required to be worn during our in-person gatherings for anyone over the age of 2. We encourage those who would prefer to continue wearing masks to do so.
