Covid-19 Update: August 2021

From Our Reopening Task Force

FBC Sanctuary Worship Reopening Guidelines

Revised August 2021

  1. As First Baptist continues to reopen for sanctuary worship, those who wish or need to continue to worship virtually are affirmed in their decision, knowing that a risk for Covid transmission persists. 2.
  2. These Guidelines for attendance will be available on the FBC website and Facebook formats. 
  3. Anyone with cough, fever or any other illness symptoms within the previous 5 days or who has had a diagnosis or been exposed to anyone with Covid in the previous 14 days MUST stay home.
  4. It is recommended that all persons attending wear a mask which covers the nose and mouth for the entire time they are in the sanctuary, narthex or hallways. 
  5. Hand sanitizer and masks will be available in the narthex.
  6. Social distancing during sanctuary worship is encouraged.
  7. Your Task Force will monitor the rate of new Covid cases in Burke County. Please access this website for further details: https://www.covidactnow.org/us/north_carolina-nc/county/burke_county?s=1137258
  8. Worshipers MUST call to report to the church office if they test positive for Covid within two weeks following attendance at sanctuary worship and agree to allow FBC staff to notify others who attended that service, with worshiper anonymity maintained.
  9. Appropriate sanitation procedures will be followed for the sanctuary before and after worship, and for the narthex restrooms after use (door knobs etc.).
  10. Church building air filters have been upgraded and air ventilation increased.
  11. The Deacons have given latitude to the Covid Task Force to periodically modify these recommendations based on community risk levels, vaccination rates, and other governmental recommendations.
