COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is the current mask policy at McDermott Road?
Masks are not currently required, but everyone (2-years-old and older) is encouraged to wear a mask while indoors, particularly when interacting closely with others.
2. What if someone tests positive for COVID-19 after attending a McDermott Road gathering?
If you or someone in your family tests positive for COVID-19 within a week of attending any McDermott Road gathering, we ask you to promptly contact the church office. Your name will not be publicized, but we will attempt to inform other attendees and participants that someone in that gathering has tested positive. We also ask that you personally inform any attendees with whom you had prolonged contact.
3. Is there a point at which COVID-19 might cause McDermott Road to cancel services, classes, or gatherings again?
At this time, the elders do not have any plans to cancel services, classes, or gatherings. However, with the rising number of cases and hospitalizations in our area, the elders encourage everyone to exercise awareness and caution when choosing whether or not to attend in-person gatherings. We will continue to offer several online options so that both adults and children can worship, study, and connect virtually.
4. What is McDermott Road doing to minister to members who are ill with COVID-19?
When a McDermott Road member is experiencing any sickness or crisis, our Life Groups are faithful to surround that brother or sister with love and care. If you are in need of any sort of assistance, please contact your Life Group leader. If you are not a member of a Life Group, please contact the church office. Or if you know of others in the community we might minister to, please contact the church office.
