MASKS

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.

WORSHIPPING IN THE FAMILY LIFE CENTER

  • Chairs will be spaced for social distancing. Families and individuals in different “bubbles” must maintain at least 6 feet of distance from one another.

  • While difficult, we ask that attendees refrain from hugging, handshakes, holding the door for the person behind you, etc.

  • Tithes and offerings may be placed in the dropbox at the entry to the FLC.

  • There will be no congregational singing during worship.

  • At the end of the service, please remain socially distant as you depart, remembering to exit through the Education Wing.

  • At this time, the nursery remains closed.

PERSONAL HEALTH & SCREENING

All attendees MUST complete COVID screening & temperature check at check-in to confirm that in the last 14 days, they have no COVID symptoms (see below), are not awaiting a COVID-19 test result, and have not been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients.

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)
