Dear Brethren, The Peace of God! 

In light of the information that has become available concerning the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Council of the Ministry has decided that as of 13/03/2020 all National Music Practices, Youth Meetings, Youth Meetings with Counsels, Visits and Services to and for the Ill and Family Services will be suspended.

Additionally, due to the recent increase in the number of suspected cases of Coronavirus in our country, it is suggested that our Brethren adopt the following measures:

  1. It is recommended that the brethren avoid greeting one another with handshakes, kisses and embracing one another.
  2. Brethren who show symptoms of the disease, such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing, should stay at home and contact the NHS through the website www.111.nhs.uk or by calling 111; if anyone has these symptoms, they should not participate in worship services.
  3. The brethren should avoid traveling to contaminated regions and visiting the elderly or those with chronic illnesses.
  4. Those who have been in contact with individuals infected with the coronavirus or who have returned from high-risk areas, and are feeling ill, or showing symptoms such as coughing, difficulty breathing or registering a fever, are recommended to remain at home and contact the NHS.
  5. It is recommended to wash your hands several times a day, for at least 20 seconds, using soap and hot water especially after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose, when you wake up, before meals, after using the bathroom, after use of public transport, after being out in the public and before going to bed. Additionally, it is recommended that you use alcohol-based hand sanitiser gel.
  6. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, particularly if you have not washed your hands.
  7. To reduce the spread of germs when sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or sneeze into your upper sleeve – not your hands. You should immediately discard the tissue and wash your hands.
  8. Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are touched regularly using cleaning products to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to others. This should occur frequently.
  9. Brethren that participate in the GEM (Musical Education Group) should avoid transmission of this and other illnesses by not sharing mouthpieces and regularly disinfecting them.
  10. With respect to the Holy Suppers, they will be scheduled in due time.

Please note that as information becomes available, we may need to have additional deliberations concerning this situation.  We ask for the Brethren’s understanding and for your prayers on behalf of those who are affected by this situation.

Greetings,
The Elders
