Creating Safe & Welcoming Community

COVID-19 RESPONSE AND UPDATES

As a congregation, it is up to each one of us to create and maintain a climate that supports the well-being of everyone in the congregation. Preparing for an outbreak and practicing healthy habits to prevent disease transmission are some of the most pro-social, altruistic things you can do. With that in mind, in this current phase of preparation and prevention, here are a few things we are doing to slow down the spread of COVID-19 and to protect one another to the fullest extent possible:

How can I help?

Stay home if :

  • Your are sick.  Do not go to work, school, or church if you are sick or if a family member is sick. Even if you feel that you can rally and try to be productive, consider our neighbors with vulnerable immune systems who may be less able to cope with the illness that you may be carrying. 
  • If you are immuno-compromised or over 65. 

Reach Out:

  • Please reach out to taryn.strauss@uuca.org or pastoralcare@uuca.org if you become sick, in quarantine, or are otherwise struggling. Even if we are avoiding face-to-face meetings, we can stave off loneliness by other means. Connect by phone and email if you are feeling isolated.

Practice Prevention:

  • Practice common sense precautions. Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. It has been suggested that you can sing the chorus of OutKasts’s hit song “Ms. Jackson” to ensure 20 seconds of hand washing.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Keep separate towels for every member of your household. Cough into your elbow. Clean frequently-used surfaces like telephones and doorknobs.
  • If you have traveled recently to a country or state that has a high level of outbreak, even if you do not have symptoms, please consider self-quarantining until the danger of infection has passed. 
  • Concentrate your information gathering on reliable, data-backed sources that offer strategies and are not overwhelmingly driven by advertisers who profit from your anxiety. This podcast and article from the New York Times provide potential starting places. I found this article from Foreign Policy magazine helpful.
