An update from your Covid-19 team

As we move toward a time when we can meet again on the church campus, the COVID Safety Team is meeting weekly to draft policy outlining what the stages of the return will look like. These stages are being built with a balance of science and compassion. Our goal is to follow the advice of experts while keeping services as equitable and accessible as possible to all members and friends of the church.

Our guide for moving through each step is the data available for the Baton Rouge metro area at www.covidactnow.org. The map colors on this site show local risk levels and are updated daily. While East Baton Rouge Parish is in a COVID Risk Level of orange or higher, all church-endorsed activities should remain online. If EBR moves into a yellow or green risk level for six consecutive days, then outdoor, masked, distanced gatherings may be held.

An expanded and detailed policy is being drafted by the team with staff support and will be endorsed by the board and posted here soon. In the meantime, watch EBR’s progress here.
