Statement on COVID-19

August 3, 2020 UPDATE: As Courage International continues to monitor the developments relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we welcome the easing of restrictions in some areas, which may allow us to move forward with some of our previously scheduled gatherings. This is important to us because, while virtual meetings and events have allowed our members to stay connected, the convenience of online meetings cannot replace the spiritual and emotional benefits of meeting with one another in person.

We remain mindful that the situation surrounding the pandemic is subject to change at any moment, and it is our priority to ensure the health and safety of our members. Know that any of our upcoming in-person events may still be cancelled, per the directives of local health departments. For events which are not cancelled, we ask participants to please respect the policies of the venue at which the event is taking place with regard to social distancing, hand sanitizer, and masks.

Comunicado sobre el COVID-19

ACTUALIZACIÓN al 3 de agosto del 2020: mientras que Courage Internacional continua monitoreando el desarrollo de la actual pandemia COVID-19, acogemos el alivio de restricciones en algunos lugares, lo que puede permitirnos seguir adelante con algunas de nuestras reuniones ya programadas.   Esto es importante para nosotros porque si bien es cierto que las reuniones y eventos virtuales han permitido a nuestros miembros mantenerse conectados, la facilidad de las reuniones online, no pueden reemplazar los beneficios espirituales y emocionales del encuentro personal de unos con otros.


Seguimos siendo conscientes que la situación que rodea la pandemia está sujeta a cambios en cualquier momento, y es nuestra prioridad garantizar la salud y seguridad de nuestros miembros.  Sepan que cualquiera de nuestros próximos eventos en persona aún pueden ser cancelados según las directivas de los departamentos de salud locales.  Para los eventos que no se cancelen, pedimos a los participantes que por favor respeten las políticos del lugar en donde se realiza el evento en cuanto a la distancia social, desinfectante de manos y el uso de máscaras o tapabocas.


Para sugerencias adicionales, por favor revise hacia abajo nuestro pronunciamiento inicial el 13 de marzo del 2020.
