NHBC COVID GUIDELINES
No Mask Requirement—
We are aware of the August 2021 order issued by Dallas County regarding face coverings inside business, schools, and county buildings. Churches are not a part of this order. However, you are welcome to wear a mask at any time at NHBC. Please continue to respect those who would like social distance, wash hands often and stay home if you are not feeling well. We will continue to have in-person worship service on Sunday and livestream will also be available via Facebook. Let’s pray for those affected with COVID and the healthcare workers who are ministering to them.
Self-Reporting and Notification—
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or you have been exposed to (having spent more than 15+ minutes in close proximity [six feet or less]) someone proven to have COVID-19, please report it to a pastor or staff member of NHBC.
Every person who had close contact or exposure within the previous 48-hours of someone reporting contact will be notified. Personal information will not be shared (unless permission is given).
According to the CDC, “close contact” is defined as being “within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes” (source: Contact Tracing for COVID-19).
If you tested positive for COVID-19, CDC recommends isolation for at least 10 days after illness onset and being symptom free for 3-days. If you were in close contact with a self-reported person, self-isolate for a minimum of 3 days. After 3-days, the individual can take a COVID-19 viral test. If negative, the individual can return to church. If no test is taken, self-isolation for 10 days is required. (source: “Symptom-Based Strategy to Discontinue Isolation for Persons with COVID-19”).
Thank you for following these NHBC COVID-19 guidelines for the safety of the NHBC family.
There will be hand sanitizer available as you enter the building.
