Keep Your Members Healthy
Advice for faith-based groups.

If the flu in your area is causing more severe disease, the Centers for Disease Control(CDC) and your local health department may suggest that people avoid close contact with others and avoid attending large gatherings, a practice often called social distancing. These measures are intended to slow the spread of flu. Religious traditions and obligations may make it difficult to implement social distancing measures. However, faith-based and other community groups can do some specific things to help keep their members healthy.

What steps can leaders of religious services or community meetings take if there is an outbreak of flu in my community?

To the extent possible, make decisions in accordance with your state and local health departments about community gatherings and religious services during widespread flu illness in your community. People should not be discouraged from gathering unless advised by public health officials.
