Coronavirus & First Pres

We strongly recommend everyone who is eligible be fully vaccinated and boosted.  While the spread of the Covid 19 virus is decreasing in our community, it is still contagious and there are many among us who remain at risk or who are in close contact with at-risk individuals.  We will continue to wear masks and follow other precautions for now as we gather inside the church building.

Recommendations for Everyone!

WASH your hands. Hand sanitizer is good, but good handwashing is better! Here’s a great video that shows how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PmVJQUCm4E. To know how long, sing Happy Birthday twice before you rinse. Also, count how many times a day you wash your hands. Three? Ten? Thirty? The number doesn't matter as much as your awareness of how often and when you're doing it. Here's what's recommended:

  • whenever you come into your home (first thing)
  • after using the restroom (of course!)
  • before eating
  • after sneezing or coughing (if possible - here's where hand sanitizer comes in handy).
  • any other time you're moving in public places and have the opportunity.
