As you are probably aware, the global community is currently experiencing a health concern with the Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. This virus has impacted multiple nations, and the CDC and US Government has set in place travel restrictions as well as advised some helpful practices to diminish its spread. We are praying for the world, for health, recovery, and the eradication of this virus, and are also taking steps to continue to ensure the safety of every person who comes to Heavenly Hills Christian Camp and Retreat Center.
We’d like to invite you to partner with us in prayer for our world, and to also be thoughtful of yourself and others during this time. While we don’t partner with fear, we want to be wise and take precautions to protect our local region as well as the international community that comes to visit. Here are some safety practices that we believe will help us to all stay healthy:
Wash hands often with soap and water and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Stay home if sick, have a fever, or a cough.
Avoid touching face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue/elbow.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects, like your phone, water bottle, and keys.
Get plenty of sleep and eat healthy to support your immune system.
Until further notice, we politely request you to stay home if you are experiencing a fever, sore throat, cough, or other respiratory symptoms.
Our camp directors, managers, and staff will be focused on providing a clean, sanitized environment during your stay in an effort to protect individuals attending our camp. We believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our Heavenly Hills family, while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and courage informed by the latest science-based information.
We are taking taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact, including increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures for our camp during retreats and camps.
