COVID RESPONSE PLAN

In the event that we are notified that someone who has tested positive with Covid-19 or has been potentially exposed, we have put together this response plan.


Is Self-Quarantine from Church activities required?

First Degree contact—contact with someone who tested positive for COVID


  1. Was this period of exposure less than 15 minutes?
  2. Were both parties socially distanced—more than 6 feet apart?
  3. Were you wearing a mask during this contact?
  4. Was the other person wearing a mask?
  5. If ‘yes’ to all above questions, then self-quarantining is NOT required.
  6. If ‘no’ to any of the above questions, then 14-day self-quarantining is recommended—specifically from all ‘in person’ church activities

a.  If a negative COVID test is obtained, then may resume ‘in person’ church activities after 10 days.


b.  Recommended to self-monitor closely for COVID symptoms and notify pastor/church leader if symptoms appear.


Second Degree contact—contact with someone who has not tested positive for COVID, but himself/herself may have had contact with someone who tested positive for COVID


  1. No need to self-quarantine from ‘in person’ church activities
  2. Recommended to self-monitor closely for COVID symptoms and notify pastor/church leader if symptoms appear
