Issues Relating to Covid-19
These are updated national measures on Covid-19 under The Disaster Risk Management Act – September 07, 2020.
Persons 65 years and older are required to work from home and otherwise, must stay home. They are, however, permitted to leave home once per day for medical care, food, exercise and other essentials of life – which include attending a worship service.
Also, Worship Services may continue to be held within the existing guidelines. There must be temperature checks, sanitization, and the MANDATORY wearing of masks during services.
We are now in the community transmission phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. So please remember to pay very close attention to the periodic updates and advisories issued by the relevant authorities.
Therefore, please remember to call and pray with one another. Also, keep safe, practice social distancing, wash hands and clean surfaces regularly.
Most importantly, remember to wear your masks, sanitize, and maintain the 6 feet physical distance. Also, let us keep in touch and encourage each other, especially during these very challenging times.
