COVID-19 Update

 
Dear Sword Family,
News of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it impacts us as a church and community is rapidly changing. We value our church family, and so we want to act responsibly when considering what steps we should take as we deal with this crisis here at home. Nothing will completely replace in-person meetings and gatherings, but this is a critical time that compels us to be sensitive to the health and well being of the vulnerable among us. We will continue to adjust and adapt as necessary.

STEPS WE ARE TAKING:
1. We are currently indoor services at the 33% capacity limit with social distancing measures in place. We will also continue to live-stream our services online.

2. We remain in contact with local health and governmental officials. We will continue to monitor the the progression of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) day by day and keep you informed.

3. We are actively reviewing contingency response plans should COVID-19 impact our ministries, our team members, or those we serve.

4. We have implemented an even more aggressive strategy as it relates to cleaning our facilities in addition to our intense cleaning procedures and schedule.



STEPS YOU CAN TAKE:
1. STAY HOME IF YOU'RE FEELING SICK
Be alert to the signs of fever and any other cold/flu-like symptoms. Stay at home if you are ill, except to get medical care. Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.

2. COVER COUGHS & SNEEZES
Viruses are thought to spread mainly from person to person in respiratory droplets of coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

3. IMPROVE HAND HYGIENE & MINIMIZE FACE CONTACT
Viruses also spread via contaminated hands. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid rubbing your eyes and unnecessary touching of the face.

4. STAY INFORMED
Look for updates from the Center for Disease Control and your local news. Sword of The Spirit Ministries will continue to provide you with updated information.
