covid precautions

COVID has been a fluid situation,  as such we continue to monitor the statistics and Iowa governor's recommendations.   

  • CDC guidelines of six-foot social distancing will be observed for seating in the auditorium.  Sit in pews with yellow balloons on the ends OR red balloons for "high risk" seating.
  • Sunday service will live steam on the church FB page for those who are not able to join in person..
  • Wednesday Mid Week ReFuel Service is currently held online on Facebook Live at 7 PM. This is a topical discussion or study for adults. Our FB  page is Jubilee Bible Church Ottumwa
  • At this time wearing masks are not required, but encouraged.  All church members serving during a service are required to wear a a mask.
  • Hand sanitizer is located throughout the building.  Masks are available upon request..
  • All areas used during service will be disinfected before the next service with a CDC approved, non toxic disinfectant/sanitizer, this includes toys or nursery bedding.


  • Take your temperature before you leave your house.  Stay home if you are running a fever, feel sick or been in contact with someone who may have COVID19 within the last 14 days.  Thermometers are located at the church if needed but we are not requiring a temperature check on site at this time.
  • Use hand sanitizer as needed.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.  
  • Respect others' concerns and observe six-foot social distancing.
  • Wear a face mask – not required but highly recommended - if for no other reason than others feel more protected.
