The Los Rios Leadership Team would like to update the information regarding COVID and variants such as the Omicron COVID-19 variant. It is imperative that we continue to ensure the health and wellness of all members. The information comes from the Center for Disease Control, (CDC), U. S. Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the CANV Conference.
We need common-sense safety measures to protect ourselves.
Wear a mask (preference is the N95 or FFP2 mask) at all times indoors.
Recommend hand washing and sanitizing frequently.
The CANV Conference Team has protocols for relaunching activities during this time. Please visit the CANV Conference website www.cnumc.org.
Get vaccination shots and the booster shot.
All three agencies recommended wearing a mask. Honor mask rules in place at a private business, traveling, public transit, health care facilities, etc.
The Omicron-COVID-19 variant has caused a sharp increase in hospitalizations cases. Don’t assume everyone is vaccinated. A variant is when the virus changes through mutations that create new strains of virus (call variants) over time.
Get tested if you are sick as this virus can help protect against severe disease and death. Isolation and quarantine to avoid others if you test positive or exposed to COVID.
Don’t lose your proof of vaccination. Many people have taken a picture of their vaccination card
In California children 5 years and older can be vaccinated.
We pray you are all safe, well, and staying positive during these unusual and difficult days. Stay strong and lean into your faith and friends to be uplifted.
