Wash

Wash hands with a liquid soap for 20 seconds. Sing Happy Birthday twice if you need some entertainment to wash for 20 sec.

Clean

Use disinfectant to wash any commonly touched surfaces or objects. Disinfect items more often than usual.

Stay

Stay home if you are sick. If you can stay home and distance yourself from others that is a good practice as well.

Cover

Be sure to cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. It is allergy season as well, so please do not judge others during this time.

Avoid

Avoid touching your eyes, mouth or nose. Germs spread quickly through these touch points. 

Distance

Social Distancing means staying at least 6' away from other people who do not live in your household. Wear a mask in public places where you may need to be closer than that. 

What is “flattening the curve?”

 

Flattening the curve refers to using protective practices to slow the rate of COVID-19 infection so hospitals have room, supplies and doctors for all of the patients who need care.

This image was adapted from the CDC.

A large number of people becoming very sick over the course of a few days could overwhelm a hospital or care facility. Too many people becoming severely ill with COVID-19 at roughly the same time could result in a shortage of hospital beds, equipment or doctors. On a graph, a sudden surge in patients over a short time could be represented as a tall, narrow curve. 

 

On the other hand, if that same large number of patients arrived at the hospital at a slower rate, for example, over the course of several weeks, the line of the graph would look like a longer, flatter curve. In this situation, fewer patients would arrive at the hospital each day. There would be a better chance of the hospital being able to keep up with adequate supplies, beds and health care providers to care for them. (Information from Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHP) )

Church Information

How are we helping?

This page will be updated periodically as information becomes available. We want to encourage the members of our church to use caution as we enter the coming weeks. The church will be practicing physical distancing as a way to keep exposure to a minimum for our congregation. Soon a CARE page will be made available through which you can request prayer, help with groceries, get connected to a mail ministry and more as we move forward into this unprecedented time. Please know that we are covering all of you and this situation in prayer. God is still at work here. In His name we pray.
