Coronavirus (Covid-19)

You are a hiding place for me; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with shouts of deliverance!

Psalm 32:7

Dear friends,

The coronavirus has become widespread. We have therefore created this page with information and advice for our church family worldwide.

As a church we have a responsibility to set an example at home and in society.

We are not fearful, as the bible teaches us that the Lord will protect those that love Him, yet the bible also says that we should be alert and wise.

What you should do:

Personal Hygiene

In accordance to government guidelines, wash your hands regularly with soap or alcohol sanitiser, if you sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow, use paper tissues then dispose of them immediately.

Travel Overseas

If you have travelled to or from anywhere outside of Sweden, you should self isolate for 14 days on your arrival.

Feeling Unwell

Most importantly, if you even begin to feel like you have a cold (cough, sneezing, sore throat, aches etc) you must self isolate at home for at least 14 days. Do not go to your doctor or hospital. Call local helplines (in Sweden 1177 or 11313).

For further information, go to the Public Health Agency of Sweden, the World Health Organisation or the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Love, ID
