Update for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference on Entering Phase 5
June 11, 2021 from Curtis Brown, IGRC Director of Connectional Ministries

The entire State of Illinois has meet the Illinois Department of Public Health’s safety metrics and entered Phase 5 of IDPH's COVID-19's safety plan on Jun 11, 2021. Here is what it means for our Illinois Great Rivers Conference churches:

We have entered Phase 5 on June 11. At this time, we have retracted our Illinois Great Rivers Conference general health safety recommendations and guidance found at www.igrc.org/coronavirus.

Local churches should continue to be cautious and rely on their church health safety team to make determinations about safe practices in their ministries.

Local churches should continue to monitor and support recommendations from national, state, and local public health officials.

State safety guidance, including recommendations on when to wear masks and how to practice social distancing, can be found at: http://dph.illinois.gov/.../Illinois%20Phase%205...

Some ministries, including day camps and preschools, will need to continue to follow additional safety practices as described by the IDPH licensing requirements.
