Dallas County COVID Meter
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. While the numbers in Dallas County indicate a significant decline from record highs in July, the disruptive impact of COVID-19 on our populations and health care systems remains. As of September 4, 2020, the Coronavirus Pandemic has infected over 73,000 people and killed over 940 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, Dallas County has met the criteria to move from the “Red” high-risk level into the “Orange” moderate-risk level. Dallas County had been in the “Red” risk-level since the color-coded risk chart was announced in May, and as the county saw record numbers of cases and hospitalizations over the summer. 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.
