Early Protocols for Coronavirus

Because we care, I want to take a moment to cover the topic of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) as it affects our church community.
The Ohio Department of Health recommends the following precautions. 
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Avoid contact with people who are sick.
• Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals.
• Wash hands often with soap and water (20 seconds or longer).
• Dry hands with a clean towel or air dry your hands.
• Cover cough with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after touching surfaces.
• Clean and disinfect ‘high-touch’ surfaces often.
• Call before visiting your doctor.
• Practice good hygiene habits.
It is also recommended to get the flu vaccine if you have not already done so as the flu can mimic symptoms of the Coronavirus.
For Epiphany worship services and other gatherings:
• • When greeting each other and passing the peace, let’s refrain from shaking hands.
• If you are serving communion, please wash your hands before the service, in addition to using the antibacterial before serving.
• If you are ill, please stay home.
• If you are unable to make it to worship services, please watch live on Epiphany’s YouTube channel.
• If you are unable to make it to a worship service, you may also continue to give while you’re away.
• Give Online
• Give+ Text
• Mail a check.
