Dallas County COVID Meter
Updated: October 16, 2020
Church Family and Friends,
Due to the continued Coronavirus Pandemic, (Covid-19), all of our in-person worship services and other events remain canceled until further notice. The provisional 7-day daily average of confirmed and probable cases in Dallas County indicates a significant increase from the previous average of the past weeks. The disruptive impact of COVID-19 on our populations and health care systems remains. As of October 15, 2020, the Coronavirus Pandemic has infected over 88,000 people and killed over 1,000 people in Dallas County alone.
Our ultimate goal for closure is to protect the health and well-being of our congregation. Because of the current state and local guidelines, our church facilities will remain closed at this time. Our return to in-person worship will be guided by the Dallas County COVID 19 meter. We will not return to in-person worship until the meter is in the green zone.
According to the Dallas County Public Health Committee, the increase in hospitalizations, and new COVID-19 positive cases, as well as other metrics, has led the Public Health Committee to recommend a return to "Red" on the COVID meter. The press release announcing this change to the risk meter may be downloaded here.
We will continue to worship virtually via our Live Streaming page, and on Facebook, @theshbc. Contributions can be given here online or they can be mailed to the church.
