Update for Thursday, March 12
In his daily briefing on Thursday afternoon, Governor DeWine has suspended gatherings of greater than 100 people in the State of Ohio; however, that order does not include religious institutions. The spirit of this ban is to limit and/or slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in order to protect the most vulnerable people in our communities. While we are not required by order to do so, NewPointe will cancel all services and activities at all of our campuses this coming Sunday, March 15.
We are FOR our communities, and we are FOR protecting the health and well-being of the most vulnerable in our communities. We will make the decision on a week-to-week basis about each week's services as the situation develops. Again, to be clear, we are canceling services only for this Sunday, and we will reevaluate every week.
