The Church Council of Greater Seattle is joining in efforts to help blunt the spread of COVID-19.  As people of faith, we can communicate that the situation warrants serious precautions. We can also do our part to respond to misinformation and stigma.  Please share, print, and post the information below as you see fit.

We encourage you to follow this developing situation, and to keep educating yourself about the disease, what health professionals are learning about the transmission of COVID-19, and the best ways to limit the possibility of exposure and infection for yourself, loved ones, congregants and community members. This on-going education about the illness is especially important for anyone with a compromised immune system, or anyone who is regularly around others with such a weakened system.
