There is a lot of information that is going out about COVID-19, more commonly known as Coronavirus or novel Coronavirus (nCoV). Here is a link from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) if you want to know more about what this virus really is. CDC COVID-19 Current Information
UPDATE (3/25): The CDC has also provided a resource directly geared for Faith Based organizations on this page with suggested guidelines for gatherings and ministry to members of their congregation: CDC Interim Guidance for Faith Based Leaders
Our convention staff has made an official response to COVID-19 in a letter sent to churches and pastors on Thursday, March 12, 2020. You can read that letter here. UISBC Letter in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic.
We encourage all Southern Baptist Congregations to continue to pray for our national leaders as they seek to find a solution to this current crisis.
