UPDATE: CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Amidst concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how Stand Courageous is responding.
Our team is carefully and continually monitoring this situation as it pertains to each community that we have a Stand Courageous Men’s Conference scheduled. As information evolves, this page is intended to be a place for you to gain understand and information to frequently asked questions. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide a safe environment at any Stand Courageous Men’s Conference.

ARE STAND COURAGEOUS CONFERENCES BEING HELD?

Your community’s health and safety are our utmost concern. We will abide by all local and state government policies and be aware of guidelines recommended for gatherings. We believe that one of the best ways we can support your communities right now is by following the lead and decisions of the host church(es) involved in bringing the Stand Courageous Men’s Conference to your community.

As churches have been deemed essential federally by the White House Administration, the churches and their leadership that host Stand Courageous Men’s Conferences will be the best source for decisions on each event. Our website will be updated with any changes, if needed, per event.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT A STAND COURAGEOUS CONFERENCE?

Each Stand Courageous Men’s Conference will be hosted at a local church and will follow the decisions of that church as it relates to onsite policies and procedures based on local and state government policies.

Attendees are welcome to personally wear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) such as a face mask or covering if desired.

Sanitization options will be readily available at each Stand Courageous Men’s Conference. Temperature checks will also be taken at registration for each attendee as they arrive to register and enter the conference. Any additional or extra measures will be at the discretion of the host church.

HOW CAN I BETTER UNDERSTAND THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)?

Coronavirus is a type of virus that causes respiratory illness — an infection of the airways and lungs. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. It is part of the same family of coronaviruses that includes the common cold. The coronavirus outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Since then, the virus has spread to other countries.

The most common early symptoms appear between 2 and 14 days after infection. Symptoms can be mild to severe. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention. Most people recover from the disease without needing special treatment.

Like many other viruses, the coronavirus (COVID-19) seems to spread from person-to-person through a cough, sneeze, or kiss. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the risk in the U.S. is still low. They will update this status regularly on their website at cdc.gov/coronavirus.
