Our Criteria for Return to Services as the Pandemic becomes Endemic

Covid status as of 7/12/22:

  • The current risk level in the Louisville Metro Area (Includes surrounding counties in Indiana and Kentucky) is HIGH
  • Weekly new cases are about 300 per 100K.  This number is likely to be lower than the actual number of cases due to the use of home tests.
  • Weekly Covid admissions have been hovering around 10 per 100K population.  This is a measure of severe disease and is much more accurate and important than total number of cases, which includes asymptomatic positive tests as well as mild cases.
  • The percent of beds occupied by Covid patients is a measure of stress on the health care system.  It is currently at 3.8% which indicates that the system has capacity and is not stressed.

     Limitations:

  • Attendees (both adult and children) no longer need to show proof of vaccination, although vaccination is highly encouraged.
  • Mask use is required
  • Social distancing is required
  • Group singing is allowed with masking
  • RE is not meeting again until mid-August
  • There is no childcare.

If you zoom:

  • Services will continue to be accessible via zoom every week in addition to the in-person options.

 

We will be acting according to the 3 risk levels determined by the CDC and the Covid Act Now working group, using the numbers for the Louisville Metro Area as our guidelines.
