How do I know if I should stay home?

While we greatly desire to worship together with each of you in person, your safety, and the safety of our entire Hershey Free family, is of paramount importance. We also wish to respect the desires of each individual and family in choosing whether to join us in person or continue to worship online. If you or someone you live with has had a fever, cough, traveled, or been asked to quarantine in the last 14 days, we appreciate your willingness to stay home and help protect others.
