Community Health Advisory Team Update | October 2022

The Community Health Advisory Team (formerly the Reopening Task Force) has met infrequently in the last six months as Covid transmission has slowed and testing and vaccines have become widely available. With a return to cooler weather and indoor activities, and hopefully larger gatherings at church, we encourage members of our congregation to follow CDC guidance and use common sense when it comes to masking or staying home if ill. The latest Covid variant is being widely transmitted (40%) by asymptomatic people, so please test if you think you "just" have allergies or feel at all unwell. Our staff will be testing frequently, and the Minister tests for Covid twice a week and always on Saturdays.

 

We also urge everyone who is able to receive the new updated Covid booster and help reduce the risk of community spread. Stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you at church!
