Latest updates from WELS on the coronavirus pandemic
Information will be shared as it becomes available.
Watch a livestreamed worship service
In response to the recent COVID-19 guidelines regarding gatherings of 50 or more people, many of our WELS congregations are offering livestreams of their worship services. WELS wants to make sure we not only have updated information for livestreams of worship services to share with members, but we want to add information for congregations that will now be offering livestreams of their services.
As we find ourselves in uncertain times, with news of the spread of COVID-19 changing constantly, you may be wondering what your school should do to reduce risk to your faculty, staff, students, and the communities in which you live and serve.
At this time, we ask you to follow the lead of your local school district. If schools in your district close proactively or because they are directed to close by your state government, your school should close as well. Otherwise we encourage you to keep your school open unless circumstances (such as illness) dictate otherwise.
We’ve included some resources to assist you if you seek to educate your students virtually due to a closure in your area.
