COVID Update – October 2022

Last week, Dr. Tim Babinchak joined us to offer perspectives on the health concerns affecting our communities.
  • While hospitalizations are high but declining, the number of deaths each day in the U.S. holds steady at around 400.
  • Vaccinations and the new bi-valent boosters are important to reducing the impact of COVID on society.
  • The most important mitigation is: “If you don’t feel good, stay home” from worship and church activities, work or school, and other public events.
  • The overlapping effects of other mitigations, such as increasing ventilation of indoor spaces, maintaining distance between people, washing hands, and wearing N95/KN94 masks are also key to keeping our congregations safe.
