ASLC & COVID-19

ASLC & COVID-19

updated 3/3/22

ASLC has moved to the yellow zone because community transmission is decreasing and because the new CDC guidelines have moved from preventing the spread of infection to preventing overload of our hospital systems. This does not mean that the pandemic is over or that there is no risk of contracting COVID-19.

Highlights

  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (see below) or are feeling ill or just “not right”, stay home. Abstain from joining indoor worship services and other activities. Instead participate on Zoom or Facebook.
  • Talk to your doctor about your individual risk (high risk, immunocompromised, etc.) to determine when it is appropriate for you to participate in indoor activities with large groups and if you need to mask (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels.html)

Vaccinations

Vaccines offer optimal protection in managing your own personal risk and are foundational to controlling COVID-19 in our community. Talk to your doctor about your eligibility for a booster or third vaccine dose. If you are having a hard time accessing a vaccine or booster, please let the church office know and one of our volunteers will help.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”

John 3:16–17
