We are currently in Phase 3
Longview Presbyterian Church’s Session is using the following graph/data to help determine when to return to in-person activities in our church. The two foci determining our phase will be the 7 day running average of cases over a two week period and the CDC Community Level for Cowlitz County as the criteria for returning to in-person activities at the church.
¹ A negative test within the last 72 hours also qualifies. Tests will be available at church.
² Minors under 18 do not need to be vaccinated or have a negative test but they do need guardian verification of asymptomatic status and no known recent (5 days) exposure to COVID-19. We still recommend that everyone receive the Covid vaccination in consultation with your primary care doctor.
Worship limits do not include worship leadership, choir, or tech team.
The advisory team and session leaned heavily on the Oak Grove Presbyterian Church work and other sources such as the Center for Disease Control and the Washington State Department of Health to develop this approach.
What to do if you are exposed to someone with Covid-19?
If you were exposed to COVID-19 AND are up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations
- No quarantine
- You do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms.
- Get tested
- Even if you don’t develop symptoms, get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
- Watch for symptoms
- Watch for symptoms until 10 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
- Wear a well-fitting mask
- Wear a well-fitting mask for 10 full days any time you are around others inside your home or in public. Do not go to places where you are unable to wear a well-fitting mask.
