Subject: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Awareness at St. Peter’s

The COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting people in our community, our country and the world. What is St. Peter’s doing about it?

First, we have assembled a Crisis Management team.

St. Peter’s is keeping informed via Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and King County. We have implemented additional cleaning of commonly used surfaces such as doorknobs and hand railings. We are developing a plan that will help us respond proactively to this rapidly changing situation.

Due to an abundance of caution regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church is cancelling church worship services for the month of March. We are preparing alternate ways to worship and will communicate that soon.

We are monitoring the situation and will communicate if anything changes.

What can you do?
Practice healthy behaviors:

Stay home if you feel sick.
Avoid crowds if you are over 60 or have a pre-existing medical condition.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with the bend of your elbow or tissue. Dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands.
Wash your hands often (with warm soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer with more than 60% alcohol).
Avoid touching your face.
For more information, see Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and King County Health.
Contact our church office (425-747-3210) if you have questions, need any assistance or just want to talk.
During this time, it is important to pay attention to the facts, to do what you can to prevent the spread of illness and to treat people affected by the virus with grace and compassion.
