Lens of the Future: 3-9-2021

The Lens of the Future committee is continuing go monitor the incidence of Covid-19 infections in the community and the status of the indicators that have been adopted by the Board. Numbers are declining, and the 14-day rolling average positivity rate for Polk County was 5.23% as of March 9, 2021.
Because there has been a change in how positivity rates are calculated, and because the committee is proceeding cautiously with reopening, 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. If infection trends continue on a downward trajectory, the committee will consider moving to level 1, which will allow in-person outdoor gatherings.
