Guidelines for Cold & Flu Season
Guidelines for cold and flu season: Wherever two or more people gather, some sharing of germs is inevitable. When Catholics gather in Jesus’ name to celebrate the Eucharist, we should focus on sharing our gratitude, our faith and our belief in Christ among us and do our best to limit the spread of germs. Along with the Holy Father, the Diocese of Grand Rapids sympathizes with and holds in prayer all who have been impacted by COVID-19. In addition to the guidelines issued by Bishop Walkowiak, parishes and parishioners should continue to follow normal cold/flu prevention guidelines. The Diocese of Grand Rapids is closely monitoring the local and regional situation and will provide additional directives as needed. During cold and flu season, each of us has the responsibility of taking precautions to prevent the spread of illnesses.
