COVID-19 update

March 7, 2022

CDC, IDPH, DCFS and Lake County Public Health have issued new recommendations regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Church Council approved on Sunday, March 6, 2022 that effective immediately we will continue to recommend the use of properly fitting face masks but will not require them to participate at Holy Cross. This applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

The new recommendations clearly see the value of wearing masks, vaccinations, social distancing and other health related practices to diminish the spread of Covid-19 and/or its variants. The Church Council reserves the right to modify these guidelines in the event that it is needed due to the new data points associated with Community Levels.

We will continue with these Covid-19 Strategies

  • Continue to promote Covid-19 vaccinations and booster shots

  • Maintain social distancing where possible

  • Handwashing and respiratory etiquette where needed

  • Cleaning supplies will continue to be available

  • We will require all groups of members and/or community groups that use our facility to clean their space following their use.

  • If you exhibit symptoms please remain at home and seek medical attention

  • A negative Covid-19 lab test is advised prior to returning

 

Please be considerate of everyone's choices when indoors for worship or fellowship as members of our community or those visiting with us may have concerns regarding family and friends who are immunocompromised or unable to be vaccinated.

 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping us live our command to love one another by keeping each other safe and healthy.
