In our county someone tested positive for Coronavirus this week. We’ve been preparing contingency plans at West Bradenton—both expected and worst-case scenarios. Below is a copy of our email newsletter that went out to our church today. Feel free to copy whatever you need to communicate to your church.

West Bradenton Family:

I’m assuming you have heard the reports about the Coronavirus. At the time of this writing, there are three cases in our region. While the threat is low, we are doing everything we can to provide a safe environment on our campus.

West Bradenton is taking the following proactive steps to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. You can help us by doing your part.

  1. Utilize the hand sanitizer stations on our campus. We have them placed in high traffic areas.
  2. When you arrive on campus, wash your hands using soap for thirty seconds.
  3. Our children’s team is regularly disinfecting the toys in our children’s areas.
  4. Our cleaning team is working diligently to keep surfaces on our campus clean.
  5. Do not be offended if someone does not want to shake your hand. But don’t forget to smile at people. During this season, some may prefer a smile and a welcome over a handshake.
  6. If you have symptoms like a fever, we ask you stay home. Typically, we don’t ask people to stay home! But given the vulnerability of those with underlying health issues, it’s better to take one Sunday off if you have symptoms—just to be sure.

We don’t want to be alarmists. Again, the threat is low. However, these proactive measures are easy to take and will help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Thanks for helping us out. See you Sunday!
