Covid Safety Practices For In-Person Worship and Sunday School

Precautionary Measures Due to Coronavirus

  • Be cautious when going out – Mayor Bowser revised the COVID-19 winter surge protocols due to slowing of virus transmission and hospitalization and ordered the indoor mask mandate be lifted on March 1.    Masking is still advised by the DC Health Department and required inside the CCC building at this time.
  • Anyone who has been exposed to coronavirus or tests positive must quarantine.  Follow Centers for Disease Control for latest guidance on quarantine period, masking and testing. https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s1227-isolation-quarantine-guidance.html .  Report positive test results to trustees@cccdc.com  if you were at the church around the time of infectious period.
  • Follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for protecting yourself – vaccination, wear a mask, wash hands frequently with soap and water, cover coughs and sneezes, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, stay home if you feel ill.
  • Consult a doctor if you have a high fever, cough or breathing problems.
  • Be aware of anti-Asian/Chinese sentiments from those who have anger or fear related to the virus’ origins.  Call 911 if you feel threatened.
  • Trust God in this and all situations acting as Jesus would to check on people who may need assistance, not giving into fear, verifying information before passing it on, praying often for His protection and trusting Him for the outcome.  Our response in any situation is a testimony of our faith.
