Any prayer requests you can send to
Here's an update on what's happening!
1) Status of the stay-at-home order While Washington’s “Stay at Home, Stay Healthy” order is set to expire May 31, Gov. Jay Inslee has made moves to begin to reopen the economy. Before, only essential activities and socially distant exercises were permitted, but Inslee eased some restrictions on May 8. Gyms, most dine-in restaurants, and entertainment venues are still closed.
2) What is the reopening plan? Under Gov. Inslee’s “Safe Start” Plan, currently in Phase 1, construction, vehicle sales, spiritual drive-in services and car washes are allowed to operate with restrictions. Retail curb-side pick-up orders and landscaping businesses were allowed to reopen, and pet walkers were allowed to restart their businesses. Non-urgent medical procedures can and drive-in spiritual services can resume too. Phase 2 allows gatherings of no more than 5 people, construction, retail with restriction, professional services and restaurants with less than 50% capacity. Washington has four phases to reopening.
3) What phase of reopening is the state in? Washington is in phase 1 of its reopening plan with the exception of some small counties with no COVID cases that were allowed to enter into phase 2. (SEE PHASE CHART BELOW)
CenterPoint is still taking all the previously applied sanitation precautions (such as wiping down all flat surfaces, chair backs, doorknobs, handrails, etc...).
If you are in a high risk category, please use good judgement and stay safe. If you or your children have the sniffles and do not feel well, stay home, rest up and get well. And as always, wash your hands with soap and water often, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and get fresh air. If you are struggling with your health, we would love to know so that we can be in prayer for you; please email your prayer request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, we want to keep everyone in prayer who has been affected by the virus and the caregivers who are working tirelessly to minimize the impact.
