2020 Northwest Roundtable

3/12/2020: IMPORTANT UPDATE:

RoundTable Indefinitely Postponed for 2020. 

Registration Closed.

Refunds being processed for those who have already paid.

Team,

It has been decided to postpone the NWBDR Roundtable 2020 (April 24-25). This decision was made from abundance of caution and in support of other partner organizations who are looking to keep team members healthy for possible responses.

As you are aware the Coronavirus is already in your neighborhood. Here is a guidance sheet related to effective safe practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You will note that regular hand washing is the common practice; it cannot be emphasized enough. Please encourage churches to utilize hand sanitizer that is at least 60 % alcohol based. Avoid home remedies and fad products (essential oils, etc.). You may want to ask pastors if you can have a few minutes on Sunday to teach/demonstrate how to effectively wash your hands. (Have them sing one stanza of Jesus Loves Me This I Know while lathering their hands.)

Also, encourage team members to utilize a laundry supplement similar to Lysol Laundry Sanitizer when washing their clothes.

The Coronavirus will be around for several months; you or someone you know will be affected. Take steps now to minimize its impact on you, your family, your church, and your community.

Thanks for all you do.

Blessings.

Gary Floyd
