Update from Covid Task Force (1/13/22):
Earlier this month, the hospitals in the Des Moines area placed a full-page ad in the Des Moines Register with the headline: “Help. We Are Overwhelmed.” Since then, the situation has only gotten more serious. In that ad, our local healthcare providers went on to say, “This is preventable. Get vaccinated and get your booster. And keep taking all of the standard precautions like social distancing, washing your hands and masking up–even if you’re vaccinated. If you feel sick, stay home and get tested for COVID-19 at your local pharmacy, urgent care or physician’s office. We need your help!”
With an eye to supporting our hospitals and healthcare workers, and consequently our community, we are returning to requiring masks for all activities at the church. This includes worship, Sunday school, confirmation, meetings, etc. This also means that we will not be serving food or drink at the church, including hospitality hour and confirmation meals.
Evidence so far indicates that as fast as Omicron cases go up, they come back down again. Our hope is that this mask requirement will be of a short duration. The Task Force will be meeting again the first week of February to reassess.
Thank you for your support and your patience.
All groups wanting to meet in the church should contact the church office to book the time and meeting space.
Policies can change at any time as the Covid task force assesses circumstances regarding the coronavirus.
