Memory Challenge

Let’s remember that the Church is not closed, only the building where the Church gathers. We ARE the Church so let’s be the Church to those around us. We are all called to be ministers of the Word and show God’s peace, love, and grace to those around us.

Be blessed.

Steps to protect yourself and loved ones from Corona virus

  • Clean your hands

    Clean your hands often:

    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 touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Clean your hands

    Avoid close contact:

    Avoid close contact with people who are sick

    Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

  • Take steps to protect others:

  • Clean your hands

    Stay home if you’re sick

    Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.

  • Clean your hands

    Cover 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.

  • Clean your hands

    Wear a facemask if you are sick

    If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.

    If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

  • Clean your hands

    Clean and disinfect

    Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

    If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

  • Options to disinfect:

    Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work. Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.

    Diluting your household bleach.
    To make a bleach solution, mix: 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water OR 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
    Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.

    Alcohol solutions.
    Ensure solution has at least 70% alcohol.

    Other common EPA-registered household disinfectants.
    Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against COVID-19 based on data for harder to kill viruses.
