Dear Cowboy Church Family,
Governor Abbott has just issued a statewide order requiring all Texans living in counties that have more than 20 cases of Covid-19 to wear face masks while in a commercial space, public building, or in any outdoor setting that does not allow for 6 feet of physical distancing.
Although the order provides an exemption for polling places and religious services, there has been a significant uptick in Ellis County Covid-19 cases. There are now 391 active cases compared to 293 last week and 162 cases the week before. This is not a good trajectory and we want to do our part to slow the spread of this virus and keep our families safe. Therefore, we will follow the guidelines set out by Governor Abbott just like any other business. Effective this Sunday morning, anyone attending any of our live church services will be required to wear a mask, except for children 10 years old or younger and individuals with health conditions that may prevent them from wearing a mask.
Governor Abbott has said repeatedly that the fastest way to get Texas back to work is for us all to do our part in containing the virus. We believe that this is the right thing to do for our state, our community, and our church family. Please continue to pray for us as we try to steer the church through this unprecedented crisis. We deeply appreciate your understanding and support.
Cowboy Church Elders and Staff
P.S. We also want you to be aware that there MAY have been a Covid-19 positive person in the 10:30a service this past Sunday, June 28th. At that time, the person was experiencing no symptoms but has since tested positive for the Coronavirus. There is no way of knowing whether or not this person was contagious Sunday morning, but we are committed to being as transparent as possible when it comes to Covid-19 and will continue to update you anytime we become aware of a possible exposure.
Cowboy Church is continuing to monitor federal, state, and local updates on Covid-19 and will respond appropriately as the situation warrants.
Watch this space for further updates.
