Given that the CDC’s Community Risk Level for Tulsa County has been updated to Medium Risk from Low Risk, Hope’s Board of Trustees has made the decision to re-institute the mask requirement for Sunday services.
Although the risk level for reported cases and the risk level for the percentage of staffed inpatient beds occupied by COVID patients remain in the low-risk category, hospital admissions have risen to the medium-risk level. Additionally, the actual number of cases is probably higher than the number of reported cases.

Small groups and committees who meet at the church may continue to make their own decisions about mask requirements.
The Board will continue to monitor the situation and keep everyone’s safety in mind.
