The Health and Safety Committee at MVBT helps to manage and review policies and procedures related to COVID-19.  Please read through the resources below carefully.

This policy is subject to change due to the evolving Santa Clara County Health Orders and knowledge of COVID-19.  We request you comply with these policies to the best of your ability for the health of all concerned.  These conditions are temporary during the COVID-19 pandemic and we all look forward to when things can get back to normal.

If you are attending a meeting, event, or service organized or sponsored by MVBT or involving Rev. Mukojima, you are required to fill out the MVBT Health Attestation Form ON THE DAY OF the meeting, event, or service.

It is easiest to fill it out at home just before you head out to attend the meeting, event, or service.

You may be asked to show proof of completion of the Health Attestation upon arrival to the meeting, event, or service.
