COVID Update 8/24/2021

You are encouraged to wear a mask if it makes you feel more comfortable, however, we are not requiring our leaders or others to wear a mask.  Our children's classrooms and toys are getting cleaned and sanitized after each service.

In the case of fully vaccinated people, we are following CDC guidelines. 

CDC recommends for fully vaccinated people who have come into close contact with someone with suspected or confirmed Covid-19 to be tested 3-5 days after exposure, and to wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative PCR test result but quarantining is not required if you have no symptoms.  However, if you have symptoms, then the guideline is to quarantine.   If you serve in a ministry and are exposed, if you have symptoms, please inform the ministry team leader that you cannot come.  If you are exposed and do not have symptoms, please inform the ministry team leader so he or she can let you know how you should proceed as far as serving.

Our current policy remains the same for unvaccinated people. 

In the case of unvaccinated people, please err on the side of caution if you have any possible Covid symptoms and don’t come.  This is vital.  If you are supposed to be serving, contact your ministry team leader or appropriate staff person.  If you are exposed (close contact within approximately 6 feet for 10-15 minutes or more) with someone who has Covid, the guidelines are to quarantine for 10 days (assuming you don’t develop symptoms) or 7 days if you have a negative PCR test (we don’t recognize rapid test results) after waiting the 5 day incubation period.  The exception to this is if you are within 90 days of having had Covid.  Of course, we can’t enforce what you do with this in your personal life, but we certainly recommend following the guidelines in general and are saying don’t come to church or small group if you have had this type of exposure.  Also, realize there may be situations that don’t exactly fit this but the wise and caring thing to do would be to err on the side of caution. 

Please ask a staff person or ministry team leader if you have questions.
