HMA wants you to have access to the most current health information regarding COVID-19. HMA supports the  Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) as leaders in identifying and guiding us through this global health crisis. As people of faith bringing health and healing to our communities we support paths to health and healing. Please refer to the CDC and WHO, state and local health departments for current updates and information. We endeavor to keep material current and accurate, and post additional relevant material to help in providing care for yourself and others. 

Friends, while we may have a glimpse a post–COVID world and beginning to experience the joy of being reunited in real time and place with family, friends, and community, we are not there yet.  Health officials remain deeply concerned about the threat of the virus and the Delta variant to unvaccinated individuals.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky put it plainly at last week’s press briefing when she said, “this virus is opportunist” and as long as there are those who are not vaccinated, COVID-19 and its more dangerous variants will remain a threat.

“Vaccines are nearly 100percent effective against severe disease and death, meaning nearly every death due to COVID-19 is particularly tragic because nearly every death, especially among adults due to COVID-19, is preventable.”
