Doctors: Religious Services Are
Among Highest Risk Activities
For anyone wondering not just what activities put people at risk for getting COVID-19, but why they do, medical professionals recently released two different charts that address both questions. The charts, one of which was developed by the Texas Medical Association, each concur that attending religious services carries a high level of risk for contracting the virus.
“I do think that the public has needed and frankly deserves a little bit more directed guidance,” said Dr. Mark Casanova, president of the Dallas County Medical Society. Casanova was referring to the benefits of a new chart from the Texas Medical Association (TMA). The chart was developed by 14 doctors with different areas of expertise from the TMA COVID-19 Task Force and the TMA Committee on Infectious Diseases.
Take a look at the chart - click on the link - and read the remainder of the article from churchleaders.com

URGENT NEED
Healthy volunteers
While we remain closed to the public, we are still busy working to ensure our community has access to nutritious food. In an average week, we receive more than 17,000 pounds of food from local restaurants, grocery stores, and from individual donations. This food must be picked up, weighed, inspected, sorted, packed up, and delivered to distributions. Our small staff needs the help of healthy volunteers in order to get this done each week. See below for our current volunteer schedule.
 
Visit our Volunteer page on our website.
You will be asked a few screening questions before you can register as a new volunteer or sign up for shifts.
We hope to see you soon!
