  • MASKS are still required for anyone over the age of 3 while inside the building, including in-person worship, Sunday School classes, small groups, and committee meetings.

  • REGISTRATION is not required to attend our Sunday morning in-person worship service.  

  • SEATING will be arranged in small collections of chairs, please feel free to sit in small groups. We will maintain some spacing between groups and ask for your cooperation in maintaining this spacing.

 

For the time being, we will refrain from serving food and beverages in the building and ask that you please do not bring them in during your time in the building

As always the Regathering Team appreciates your suggestions and your cooperation. 

ENTERING THE BUILDING

You will be able to access the building via the Education Wing lobby/port cochere. Other doors to the building will be locked to ensure that everyone worshipping in the Family Life Center has been checked in.

PERSONAL HEALTH

If you think you may have COVID, know you’ve been exposed to someone who has COVID in the last 10-14 days, yourself tested positive for COVID within 2 weeks, or are not feeling well, please stay home. Please review the symptoms of COVID below if you have any questions:

  • Cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing

  • Fever of chills (fever of 100.4 or more)

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Vomiting or diarrhea

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • If you always have a cough or aches, then you are looking for a new worsening of those symptoms!

 

What if I was exposed to COVID-19?

If you KNOW someone was diagnosed with COVID-19 and BOTH of the below are true:

  1. You were with that person 2 days BEFORE their symptom onset (and/or two days before their positive test), and BEFORE they met the criteria to leave isolation

  2. AND you were within 6 feet of that person for a total of 15 minutes or more

 

If BOTH are true, the CDC considers you as "exposed to COVID-19. Stay home and "quarantine" until you meet the criteria to stop quarantine.

If I was exposed, when can I stop quarantine?

  1. If you have a negative test 5 days after exposure, you can stop quarantine 7 days after exposure

  2. If you have no symptoms of COVID 10 days after the exposure, you may leave quarantine the next day (day 11)
