March 12, 2020 – In response to the continuing evolution of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are in working with the OU to formulate lowest common denominator standards for our diverse communities. Until those guidelines are available, please consider, among other things, the following:
And don’t forget the pastoral:
With the 2020 RCA Convention just two months away, we want to assure you that we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. As of now, we plan to hold the convention as scheduled. We are still encouraging you to keep the date on your calendar and to register if you have not done so already. We will continue to monitor the situation and will make decisions as necessary. (Full refunds if we need to cancel.)
Public health decisions continue to evolve and the landscape will continue to change in the upcoming weeks. We recognize that many of you will need to be mindful of travel restrictions and need to consider the impact of being away from your communities. Our first responsibility is to health, safety, and well-being.
We will continue to be in touch as developments unfold.
Thank you for your continued vigilance in safeguarding the health of our communities and praying for the welfare of those impacted by this public health crisis.
