Dear Cornerstone

It has come to our attention that an attendee of our Cornerstone Chinese Congregation has tested positive for Covid-19. The individual last attended the on-site Mandarin service at The Odeon Katong on Sunday, 12 Sep 2021 and was fully-vaccinated. A self-administered ART (Antigen Rapid Test) done by the individual prior to attending the service had tested negative.

Safe-management protocols were in place with the necessary precautions. Contact tracing will be undertaken by the authorities and those who may have been in prolonged contact with the affected individual will be advised on the necessary procedures.

In the meantime, those who attended the said service are advised to monitor your health over the coming two weeks, and do not hesitate to undertake the ART/PCR tests and see a doctor immediately if feeling unwell.

Our auditorium at The Odeon Katong will undergo deep cleaning and thorough disinfection by a qualified cleaning company. In addition, we will also be extending the cleaning to other areas unaffected by the Covid patient, including all our offices and other ancillary rooms in the premises.

For the safety of our staff and members, we will be rolling out a few other measures:
    1. Closing our physical on-site offices from Tuesday to Thursday, 14-16 Sep
    Our on-site church offices will be closed for three days with immediate effect from 14-16 Sep 2021, during which staff will be operating from home.

    In view of the closure, our Community+ service on Wednesday night will not be broadcasted this week. All other weekday activities and events that are scheduled during this period at our church office venue will also be temporarily-suspended or taken fully online until further updates.

    2. Covid Antigen Rapid Test (ART) Self-Test for Staff
    All staff members, regardless of congregation served, will be required to administer an ART self-test.

At this point, our weekend services will continue as usual at both our worship locations at Katong and Bugis+. However, we will be watching the situation closely and will update our members and congregation should there be further developments.

Those looking to get in touch with our staff or pastors may contact our office at 6344 4733 during office hours or drop us an email at mail@cscc.org.sg.

We are pleased to know that the affected individual and the family members have very mild symptoms and are doing well. They have been placed on home isolation for recovery. Let’s continue standing in prayer for them, and also uplift our nation and frontline workers in prayer during this challenging period.

In His Grace

Cornerstone Community Church
