COVID-19

Plan to Gather

Out of love and care for our neighbors, and as members of the human community, St. John Lutheran Church will open in four phases. Following the CDC data displayed on the Brown County website and recommendations from the Wisconsin Council of Churches, we will work and gather physically with the following conditions in mind.

Criteria for Phase Transition
All criteria must be met for four consecutive weeks to move up or down in phases. The COVID-19 Task Force will look at Brown County data every Wednesday. The data reviewed from Brown County are:

  • Vaccination Rates: completed the vaccine series

  • Burden Rate: number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14 days

  • 14-Day Rolling Average Positivity Rate
    * This data is no longer available and the COVID task force is re-evaluating.
