The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. First Baptist Friendswood has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, First Baptist Friendswood cannot guarantee that you and/or your child will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, participation could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19.
Below are the procedures we will be following:
