We at Diamond Willow Ministries continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreaks within South Dakota and throughout the country. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the individuals and families affected by this pandemic across the globe. We have been extremely deligent in vetting visitors with regard to their travel and contact with the virus as well as the location they derive from. No one who has visited our campus has come in contact with, lives in, or has traveled in any area recently that would put them at risk for the virus. However, as the situation continues to unfold, it is becoming increasingly clear that in the coming weeks the process of assuring that individuals have not been exposed will grow beyond our ability to ensure the safety of our community, which is our utmost priority. With this knowledge in hand, and prayerful consideration by our staff, we will be canceling all groups visiting from outside of Fort Thompson for the duration of the Spring.
We wanted to be sure to share this information, as in the future, the COVID-19 outbreak may affect our ability to gather for worship. We will continue to monitor local and state public health information to determine gatherings for the future. While these decisions are precautionary, we seek to implement the best practices to protect our community. We want to share as much information as possible. We must all work together, united with wisdom and love, to curb the devastation that this virus can have. Thank you all for your understanding and support in this matter.
