Summer 2020 – Spring 2021
Bible deliveries and Prayer shawl ministries took place throughout the pandemic
that religious/spiritual care providers (clergy and chaplains) are considered an extension of the care team and can be present in addition to designated family member/support persons with physical distancing being maintained. This restores our ability to provide spiritual care to patients and family at the same time.
Congregational volunteer visitors will not be able to visit in facilities until the guidelines change again.
