Central Illinois Moving to Phase 3 Mitigations
Because the positivity rate in Central Illinois (region 3) is over 8 percent, beginning November 1st, Governor Pritzker is placing our area under additional mitigations, which in terms of attendance, limits to 25 people per room capacity. This should not affect either our Sunday services or Celebrate Recovery as we are not exceeding 25 people at this point. For further information, check out the state's Coronavirus website.
