Manatee County Conditions

New Cases. On April 6, the 7-day average of daily new cases was 102, the same as one week earlier. You may view graphs showing the recent rising trend in daily new cases and 7-day-average new cases in Manatee County and the State of Florida HERE.

Positivity. The latest 7-day-average percent of tests that were positive, reported by the Florida Department of Health for the week ending March 28, was 6.7%. The World Health Organization recommends positivity be below 5%. A higher positivity suggests that a community may largely be testing the sickest patients and possibly missing milder or asymptomatic cases.

Safety Practices

Our safety practices are described in a 2-page flyer, Worship Safety Practices. Before attending an in-person service, or a class on campus, please review the COVID-19 Questionnaire.

During the service, we open doors to the outside to promote fresh air exchange. Attendance is taken so that worshippers can be notified in the event one reports to the pastor that they have been exposed to, diagnosed with, or tested positive to COVID-19. Communion is served in individual sealed packages that are pre-placed in the designated seating areas.

Links to Online Worship are provided through this website and email messages sent to Palma Sola and Westminster church members. Further safety practice details may be found in the four-page Worship Safety Plan approved by the PSPC Session on June 16, 2020.
