Equipping congregations for pandemic preparedness

On March 11, 2020, the World Heath Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a pandemic in order to encourage governments to ramp up efforts to contain the spread of the virus.

As of March 30, the number of confirmed cases in Canada is 6,320. The Public Health Agency of Canada describes the risk to public health as high, and is continually reassessing the situation as more cases are reported.

In response to the flu pandemic of 2009-10, the Mennonite Church Canada Taskforce on Pandemic Preparedness and Response compiled and created resources to help equip Mennonite Church Canada churches and congregations for pandemic preparedness and response. This page offers a list of updated resources for congregations as well links to other pages and resources from other relevant organizations.
