WHAT WE’RE ASKING YOU TO DO

- If you are experiencing symptoms of illness (fever, cough, sore throat, etc.), we invite you to join us for Sunday morning worship via livestream from your home.
- Following local guidelines, please wear a mask that covers the mouth and nose. Remember to be kind if someone is not wearing a mask. Many have issues with breathing, heart, claustrophobia, or skin issues and are exempted from the public masking requirements.
- Hand-sanitizing stations are available at each entry/exit.
- You may continue to give online, by mail, or by placing your offering in one of the giving boxes located in the lobby.
- You will continue to be dismissed at the end of the service by sections. When you are dismissed, we ask that you go directly to the parking lot and fellowship with others while maintaining proper social distancing of at least six feet. Please avoid congregating in the building.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU’RE SICK
Positive Test: If an attendee later tests positive for COVID-19 (and was contagious when in attendance), he or she should notify the church office and pursue the following course of action:
- Quarantine: The infected individual should quarantine for at least 14 days and may return to services after 3 days without any symptoms and no temperature above 99.6 degrees.
- Identify and Contact: We will work with the infected person to identify those who were in close proximity and to inform them of the exposure.
Known Exposure: In the event of a known COVID exposure (such as described above), the exposed attendee should pursue one of the following two options:
- Quarantine: Self-quarantine for at least 10 days and return to services after they have been 3 days without any symptoms and no temperature above 99.6 degrees.
- Test: If they have received a negative COVID test, have developed no symptoms and have no temperature above 99.6 degrees, they may return to services after 72 hours from the time of exposure.
Possible Exposure: In the event of a possible exposure to COVID (contact with someone who is experiencing COVID-like symptoms but has not been tested), the attendee should stay home for 72 hours from the time of exposure. If no symptoms have developed during that time, the attendee may return to services.
