Updated 03/05/24 - Please Read Our Health Protocols!

CDC has released new guidance that brings a unified approach to addressing risks from a range of common respiratory viral illnesses, such as COVID-19, flu, and RSV, As part of the guidance, CDC provides active recommendations on core prevention steps and strategies:

  • Staying up to date with vaccinations to protect people against serious illness, hospitalization, and death. This includes flu, COVID-19, and RSV if eligible.

  • Practicing good hygiene by covering coughs and sneezes, washing or sanitizing hands often, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.

  • Taking steps for cleaner air, such as bringing in more fresh outside air, purifying indoor air, or gathering outdoors.

When people get sick with a respiratory virus, the updated CDC guidance recommends that they stay home and away from others. For people with COVID-19 and influenza, treatment is available and can lessen symptoms and lower the risk of severe illness. The recommendations suggest returning to normal activities when, for at least 24 hours, symptoms are improving overall, and if a fever was present, it has been gone without use of a fever-reducing medication.

Once people resume normal activities, they are encouraged to take additional prevention strategies for the next 5 days to curb disease spread, such as taking more steps for cleaner air, enhancing hygiene practices, wearing a well-fitting mask, keeping a distance from others, and/or getting tested for respiratory viruses. Enhanced precautions are especially important to protect those most at risk for severe illness, including those over 65 and people with weakened immune systems.

This updated guidance is intended for community settings. There are no changes to respiratory virus guidance for healthcare settings.

Summary:

1. Masks are optional & available based upon your preference and health needs.

2. Please continue to use Hand Sanitizer provided, wash hands for 20 seconds more frequently, keep a safe distance from one another, and cover coughs or sneezes for the health of all.

Our normal Worship time is 11:00 am in the Sanctuary! Doors lock at 11:10, so please be early or on time. Bible Study (Sunday School) begins at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall, first floor.
