LIFE AND MISSION AGENCY
March 5, 2020

 

In response to the recent news about the coronavirus (COVID-19), our prayers to God are for those who are ill with this virus and for those who care for them, especially in countries that have been most affected. We also pray for those who have or are experiencing racism as a result of their connection to the countries where most of the cases have been reported.

Public Health officials tell us that the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to any virus. General prevention measures include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • Stay home if you have influenza/respiratory virus symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, trouble breathing).
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Currently, the risk of getting COVID-19 in Canada remains low. There has been no call from Public Health officials to implement additional measures for public activities. However, it is wise to review practices related to pastoral care, programming and public worship to keep everyone, especially the most vulnerable, safe.
