H1N1 concerns prompt precautions in churches
How about, just have the "holy water" contain a sanitizer of some sort?
Good ideas, change the practice. However, yesterday the scientific news pointed
that the virus has a 10 foot radius. That is, you have to stay away, more than
10 feet from the carrier.More adjustments are coming? How about for
the other churches?In my state we are have an epidemic at some
schools; 25% out. Schools will have a day off and teachers will come in and
wipe down the building.and so it goes.
Many churches have a font in which you can fill a little bottle of Holy Water,
which I have been doing for a long time.I think that sick people
should try to stay away from public places period, but what gripes me are the
companies that only allow a certain amount of days for absences which encourage
workers to come in sick or not.May be we need to encourage companies
NOT to expect sick people with the flu to come in and furthermore not to punish
them if they don't.I hope that the middle schools are encouraging
sick students to stay home also.When my daughter attended middle
school in the 70's, they had some type of program that didn't encourage sick
students to stay home, same as high school.And for those who want
"perfect attendance" don't be endangering other kids or adults with your germs
if you're ill. Stay at home.
These comments make me sad. Why are people so critical?
I don't know why the LDS Church hasn't made it clear that people who are sick
should stay home from Church. It is aggravating to go to a meeting and sit in
front of someone who spends the meeting coughing and sneezing.
Unfortunately, you can make things "clear" all you want but people will still
do what they want.
I think it's a little sad that the Catholics have to change their ordinances
just to avoid getting sick, but I really do hope it helps, and that they can go
back to the original way soon.
Why are you so critical of other people?
Does the First Presidency have to come out and say "stay home when you are
sick"? No. Use your own judgement and take responsibility for yourself and your
family, as well as preventing the spreading what illness there is around the
congregation by following the CDC's guidelines. Our bishop came out
this Sunday and said, "If you are sick, stay home. Use the precautionary
measures mentioned throughout the media for proper hygiene."Must we
be directed in all things??? No. Use your own judgement and make the right
I would like to know, why doesn't any of the Lds wards here haave hand
sanitizers? Do you guys have it there in Utah?
