Dear Grace One Family,
As the pastors announced during last Sunday’s services, our church had 3 congregants tested positive of Covid-19. Since then, several members who came into contact with them during the weekend of 1/2/21-1/3/21 were tested. By God’s grace, all of them tested negative. It seems that the congregants who tested positive likely contracted the virus after 1/3/21 (Sun) in separate occasions. Although it’s a relief for most of us, the Elders Team (ET) asks you to continue to be vigilant in your daily life during the pandemic for the sake of yourself and our church family.
Although the cases likely did not originate from our church gatherings, ET decided to continue to conduct all activities online this weekend (1/15/21 – 1/17/21) in light of the current environment. All members are encouraged to join the Sunday services through livestreaming. However, we also welcome whoever decides to come to church on Sunday morning to worship with us.
To the best of our knowledge, the timeline and test results are as follows:
1/3/21 (Sun) – Last time all positive cases were at church
1/7/21 (Thu) – First member tested positive of Covid-19 (case 1)
1/7/21 (Thu) – ET decides that all activities be conducted online until further notice
1/9/21 (Sat) – Two members of a family tested positive of Covid-19 (case 2&3)
1/9/21 (Sat) to 1/13/21 (Wed) – All 8 members who had contact with the 3 Covid-19 members over the weekend of 1/2/21-1/3/21 tested negative.
1/13/21 (Wed) – Other family members of case 2&3 tested negative.

Please continue to pray for the three congregants who were tested positive of Covid-19 and their families. By God’s grace, all of them show mild symptoms so far. We again ask you to follow our COVID-19 operating guidelines, and we will continue to update all members about the current situation and decisions regarding future church activities. Should you have any questions, please contact Pastor Haohsin or Pastor Bill.
