RABC Responds to the Coronavirus Pandemic


This page is for use by all RABC Constituent Districts, Churches, and friends. It will be used to provide information regarding the pandemic known as the Coronavirus. Many conventions/districts/churches have begun to develop a response for their members to ensure each congregant is aware of the safety measures they may employ in their effort to remain healthy and uninfected. We strongly advise the elderly, children, and those who may have compromised immune systems to heed the advice of their physicians as it regards the measures they need to take to avoid infection.
