Subject: City of Waco Face Coverings Order

In order to prevent and slow down community spread of COVID-19, Mayor Deaver has ordered all residents 10 years old and older to wear face coverings when in public where it is difficult to keep six feet away from other persons outside of your immediate family. 

We want to support our local leaders in their efforts to keep our neighbors and us healthy and safe, so let’s lead out in following Mayor Deaver’s directions. Our in-person worship service plan already provides for 6 feet of physical distancing, but please plan to wear your face covering as you approach the building and as you move to and from your seat. 

Also, remember to stay home and share in the worship service online or on TV if you or someone in your home are experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms. For a list of known symptoms, go here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

The Columbus Avenue staff and leadership are developing a three-phase reopening plan that coincides with the “Opening Up America” guidelines (https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/) and with Governor Abbott’s “Open Texas” guidelines (https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-issues-executive-order-establishing-strike-force-to-open-texas). These plans include ways to reopen the CDC and theCENTER using new procedures aimed at keeping participants and staff safe. At this point, a reopening date has not been established, but training for all staff in new, health safety procedures is being scheduled. An overview of reopening plans is scheduled to be released at the end of next week.
