Changes to COVID Protocols
Last week New York City reported its lowest COVID positivity rates since testing began, giving us the lowest positivity rates in the country. We also celebrated a day with zero deaths from coronavirus. Praise God for this wonderful news!
With the increase in vaccinations and the improving public health situation, ACC is planning gradual changes to our Sunday-morning health protocols.
Starting June 20, we will no longer take people’s temperatures upon arrival, we will remove the plexiglass shields from the platform, and we will close the doors to the building if needed to provide air conditioning. We will also stop requiring volunteers to complete symptoms check-up forms on Sunday mornings. We will continue to ask worshipers to wear masks, to social distance, and to refrain from attending if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID. We will also continue to run air purifiers and use Merv 13 filters on the AC units.
Our hope, in coming weeks, is to relax health precautions further as public health conditions allow. We will keep you informed of any changes to our protocols before they are implemented.
