CBCGB COVID-19 Recommendations

New recommendations this week


  1. We ask everyone to attend Sunday services and all church activities remotely. Please also avoid close contact with others (being within 6 feet from another person) as much as possible. This is particularly important for those who are at high risk of becoming very ill from novel coronavirus (COVID-19), including older adults, people with diabetes, chronic heart or lung diseases, and compromised immunity. 

  2. We recommend streamlining the Sunday service process to minimize the number of essential co-workers required to physically come to church. All co-workers should wear a mask while not on stage. When using church equipment or instruments, please use germicidal disposable wipes to clean the surfaces before and after use. The masks and disinfection supplies can be found in the steel storage cabinet by the main entrance.

  3. Essential co-workers should not come to church if they are feeling sick with any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, myalgia, sore throat, or shortness of breath. Please contact your team leader immediately when you become sick, even during the service, and suspend participation in group preparation/service. We recommend team leaders to consider having a contingency plan in place beforehand. 

  4. We ask all people (including those scheduled to serve as the essential co-workers) to stay home IF 

    • You have traveled to/from or transferred at airports via Europe, UK, Ireland, China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Israel, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand, Turkey, and other US states in the past 14 days OR

    • You have been in close contact with any likely infected cases of COVID-19 or anybody with travel history in the above-mentioned areas in the past 14 days OR

    • You are currently feeling sick with any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, myalgia, sore throat, or shortness of breath.


Ongoing Precautions


  1. During the pandemic of COVID-19, we should be cautious, but not overly anxious. We should continue to worship the greatest healer, Jesus, being flexible and creative in our format as needed. We should fellowship and be united in Jesus more, not less.

  2. Please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds often, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. We have made hand sanitizer readily available on every floor of the church and in Building 151.

  3. Cough/sneeze into a tissue. Dispose of used tissues immediately into a trash can. If you don’t have a tissue, cough/sneeze into the crook of your elbow, not your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, which accelerates the spread of infections.

  4. Please avoid shaking hands and unnecessary physical contact with other people around this time. Please try to avoid crowds as much as possible.

  5. Because all diseases can have an atypical presentation, in this sensitive period, please seek medical attention as early as possible if you are feeling sick.
