Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for faith communities

Graphic showing a detailed close-up of COVID-19

This resource page is designed to support leaders as they make critical decisions in a situation that is quickly changing. We believe it essential that such decisions are made with the latest, fact-based information available to us.

Because our area includes such a broad geography, we are including links to regional resources, broken down by state. Leaders are encouraged to closely follow the guidance of public health agencies in the communities where they live and do ministry.
