As the media generates interest in the current outbreak of COVID-19, congregations have an opportunity for a ‘teachable moment’. We are in the prevention state of helping manage the spread of COVID-19. The most important things we can all do, are all the same things we recommend to prevent the spread of any illness:
 
– Wash your hands frequently with soap and water/use hand sanitizer
– Using your arm or the crook of your elbow, cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing
– Stay home when you are sick
– Avoid close contact with anyone with flu-like symptoms
– Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
– Wipe down hard surfaces with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
 
We will continue to monitor the situation, follow guidance from health officials and keep you informed as needed.
