How do we define and distinguish between COVID-19 exposure?

We will continue to utilize the CDC’s definition for “close contact” to define “exposure” within our church, maintaining the distinction between Pod 1 and Pod 2 exposure.

CDC Definition for "Close Contact"

Individuals have experienced “close contact” if they have been within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-period starting from 2 days before the infected individual had any symptoms (or, for asymptomatic infected individuals, 2 days before they received a positive COVID-19 test).

Pod 1 Exposure

These individuals meet the CDC’s definition for “close contact” with someone infected with COVID-19.

Individuals with Pod 1 exposure, as well as all members of their household, should follow our “Quarantine Policy After Pod 1 Exposure."

Pod 2 Exposure

These individuals, though in the same room as the infected individual for a service, class, group, meeting, etc., do not meet the CDC’s definition for “close contact” with someone infected with COVID-19.

Individuals with Pod 2 exposure, as well as all members of their household, may continue to participate in in-person Green Level services, classes, groups, meetings, etc., so long as neither they nor any member of their household (a) experience COVID-19 symptoms or (b) receive a positive COVID-19 test.
