Recently, news of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China and its spread to other countries, including the U.S., have raised concerns among the Chinese community about appropriate actions to take. As our church continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation, here is our response at this time.
1. If you’ve recently traveled to Asia, we ask you to: Quarantine yourself at home
for 14 days from the date of travel; inform the Austin Health Department of your
recent travel for monitoring at (512) 978-0300; and seek medical treatment quickly if any symptoms develop.
2. Regardless of travel, if you have a fever or flu-like symptoms, seek appropriate medical attention and please refrain from attending church or other public events until you are well. Practice common sense hygiene and preventive measures such as hand washing and covering your cough.
3. Do not fear or overreact, and continue gathering as you normally would if you are healthy. As Christ followers, we should exercise proper precautions but also faithfully walk in God’s protection. Do not shun people just because they recently returned from China. We live in God’s peace, and we should not contribute to a spirit of fear.
4. Pray for the people in China for God’s mercy, protection, and peace during this time. Pray for those who are sick and for the families of those who have passed away. Pray for Believers to witness and share the Gospel, and pray for wisdom as we monitor the situation.
