Dear Northwest Ministry Network,

Washington Governor Jay Inslee just announced  updated health guidance  for religious and faith-based services. This announcement includes  updated guidance  for Modified Phase 1, Phase 2 and guidance for Phase 3. 

Phase 3 would permit indoor capacity of 50% or 400 people, whichever is less. Health requirements for social distancing and facial coverings will remain the same as the guidance for previous phases.

For services taking place in modified Phase 1 and Phase 2 counties, indoor services at 25% capacity or 200 people, whichever is less. In  health guidance  for services taking place in Phase 1 counties, only outdoor services are permitted, with no more than 100 attendees.

Please check our COVID-19  webpage  for additional resources for reopening your church. You are loved and appreciated! I am praying for you and cheering you on as you lead and bring the hope of Jesus to your community.
