Hello Forest Lake Family! In this ever-changing world that we live in, we are all learning how to be flexible as we do our best to make the best choices possible. Back in August, as Orlando became a rapidly-increasing hotspot for COVID, the CDC gave guidelines that stated that everyone should wear a mask while indoors regardless of vaccination status. As our church has consistently done in the past, we look to local and national data and information to help us make choices in regards to COVID, and we asked that everyone wear a mask. Well, as central Florida, and more specifically Seminole County has seen a major decline in the positivity rate of COVID transmission to below the 10% threshold that we have used in the past, our church board and AdCom has affirmed the decision to continue to encourage wearing masks while indoors but make it optional starting October 16. Obviously, we’ll keep watching as things progress.
Thank you for giving grace as we as a church family move forward together.
