NCCC COVID-19 Policy
In case of NCCC Leadership being informed of a positive test of someone connected with the congregation of NCCC a communication in the following form will be sent to members and regular attenders. There may be minor changes to reflect the current situation. We will work to balance privacy with protecting. Only information needed for protecting will be released and then only to those who may have risk. Just as important, we will remain vigilant in working to protect those who worship with us by continuing to adhere to CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines. These include temperature checks, sanitizing, masks, and could change if PA Department of Health guidelines were to change.
11/18.2020, the NCCC Leadership was informed of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in someone who attends NCCC. That person has not been in a service since before the onset of symptoms, but a family member was just before the positive test. That person and a family member are being quarantined.
We continue to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines and NCCC’s established protocol of informing our families of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Unless you are contacted directly by the leadership or the PA Department of Health concerning quarantining, there is nothing more you need to do at this time.
NCCC will remain open at this time. We thank and remind you to follow temperature checks, masks, hand sanitizing, and social distancing within the church.
The Department of Health will notify those individuals who are considered close contacts (the definition of exposure/close contact is a person who was within six feet of the person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) and advise them to self-quarantine, accordingly. If there were persons we feel were possibly exposed, we would be contacting them to follow appropriate quarantine guidelines.
As a reminder, please continue to closely monitor your family’s health and seek medical attention if any symptoms arise that are new and/or not explained by another reason, such as:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
If family member is exhibiting symptoms or is in the process of being tested for COVID-19, please do not attend any church functions until this is resolved and inform us immediately by contacting the leadership. For more information on COVID-19, please visit the CDC’s website at cdc.gov.
Thank you for your ongoing support. We will continue to communicate updates as appropriate.
