Our response to COVID-19 at Snowmass Chapel
As we continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Snowmass Chapel is taking some measures to help prevent its spread. There are currently nine presumptive cases of the virus in Pitkin County, with many people still being tested. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The CDC and Pitkin County Health are advising that through isolation, quarantines, and canceled gatherings we can all do our part to reduce the spread and the strain on our health-care system.
To that end, here are some measures you can expect to see implemented at the Chapel in the days ahead:
- Our Sunday worship service will be live-streamed only this weekend, March 15. We understand this may cause concern, but we believe this is an important and responsible step to help prevent further spread of the virus.
- All events that take place on our campus are cancelled or postponed through March 31; please contact our staff or your group leader for updates
Our goal and our prayer is that these measures will reduce the spread of the disease, ease the burden on our healthcare facilities and hospitals, reduce the impacts nationwide, and ease your minds. We will continue to reach out to you and connect in other ways. And as always, please contact us at any time to let us know how we can serve you. We are praying for each and every one of you, and know you join us in praying for peace and healing worldwide.
