CDC shares COVID-19 guidelines for Faith-Based Organizations

ATLANTA –  The Center for Disease Control has released resources to help faith leaders prepare for the COVID-19 pandemic and any specific outbreak in their communities. The checklist focuses on planning and preparation should the disease manifest in local communities. The CDC recommends updating emergency plans wit the help of public health officials. The CDC notes that “Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.” The CDC adds that “People who are at higher risk are encouraged to avoid crowds as much as possible.”
