The Lens of the Future committee is continuing to monitor the incidence of COVID-19 infections in the community and the status of the indicators that have been adopted by the Board. While numbers are declining, the 14-day rolling average positivity rate for Polk County was 21.9% as of February 16, 2021.
Because of this rate the church remains at Level 0, which does not allow for any in-person meetings or building use, except as specifically authorized by the Board. The rate must currently be below 10% before the committee considers the possibility of having outdoor in-person meetings. The committee does not expect to recommend any change in the current status in the near future.
