Update Regarding Covid-19 Precautions

With the recent dramatic surge of illnesses and hospitalizations caused by the delta variant of Covid-19 over the last several weeks throughout the country and, more importantly, in North Carolina and Surry County, it is again necessary for the protection of our unvaccinated children and adults, as well as those who have been vaccinated, to take extra precautions to try to prevent the potential transmission of the virus in indoor settings. The delta variant of the Covid-19 virus is much more infectious and causes more severe illness among younger adults and children than the earlier strain of Covid-19, while continuing to be a significant threat to older adults. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) last week strongly recommended that all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, living in areas with high infection and transmission rates, wear face masks when engaged in any indoor activities outside one’s home.

Surry County is currently classified as an area having a high infection and transmission rate.

Therefore, with careful and prayerful consideration, with the health and safety of our congregation and community as paramount concerns, in compliance with the strong recommendations of the CDC and Governor Cooper, and based on information from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and other medical experts; the Return to Church Committee recommended and the Church Council
has approved a policy stating that until the current local surge in Covid-19 infections subsides, all individuals age 5 years and older, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, should wear a face mask for all in- door activities at First Baptist Church. This policy becomes effective this coming Sunday, August 8, 2021.

There is no desire or intent to impose on anyone. There is no judgement or criticism intended or implied. We are trying to be respectful of everyone’s rights and wellbeing. We have made our recommendations and decisions devoid of any political considerations or persuasions. We especially do not want anyone to be dissuaded from gathering to worship, study, and fellowship together as a church family at First Baptist Mount Airy. Indeed, it is our intention that our church be a place where everyone can feel safe, welcome, and loved.

I look forward to seeing you in church this Sunday.

Roger Kerley
Chairman, Return to Church Committee

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Philippians 2: 3-4
