Aware of the current global situation due to the threat of the coronavirus COVID-19 and the possible repercussions it brings, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the territory of the Inter-American Division is ready to make the adjustments required in our operations, both in the headquarters office stationed in Miami, as in institutions and unions of our territory. Our priority is the health of persons.
We are working with the Adventist World Church to implement any contingency plan required with regards to different activities and/or possible scenarios. For now, our directors’ trips to countries with government restrictions are canceled. We recommend that our employees, leaders and church members increase hygiene measures, take necessary precautions and stay informed, doing everything possible to help prevent the spread of the virus.
So far the General Conference Session is still on schedule. We hope that for the month of June, things might look more favorable, but at the same time, we will inform on any updates that come from the General Conference and the decisions with the local authorities in Indianapolis, Indiana.
We ask you to continue to pray for those affected, the efforts to eradicate the virus and encourage you to keep faith in God in these key times in the history of mankind. We will be sharing any changes that may come up regarding this situation.
