Public Statement Update

March 16, 2020

Following Governor Bullock’s announcement on Sunday, March 15th closing all public schools K-12, we are following his advice, and canceling our classes. Our students will be making their way home by Sunday, March 22nd. Moving forward, we are complying with the recommendations from the CDC regarding social distancing and reducing points of contact in order to flatten the curve. Our hope is that we can play our small part in preventing the spread of Covid19 in the Flathead Valley.

The leadership and staff of YWAM Montana – Lakeside are closely monitoring the progress of the COVID-19 virus in Montana, the U.S., and around the world. We are seeking counsel from local medical professionals as to what precautions and action steps we need to take on campus and in our ministries. We are also staying alert to local and international news, as well as updates from the State Department, CDC, and WHO.

Our first commitment is to the Kingdom of God and the Great Commission, while at the same time holding to our value of prioritizing the well-being of those we serve. The safety of all our partners – staff, students, and teams, is important to us.

We are committed to:

  • Relevant and timely communication to all our teams, students and staff
    concerning any important changes and updates related to the Coronavirus 2019-
    nCoV both globally and in Lakeside MT.
  • Following the guidelines and recommendations of the World Health Organization
    (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and local medical professionals.
  • Taking all necessary steps and ongoing precautions needed to keep our facilities
    clean and healthy for everyone who serves and participates with us.
  • Taking all appropriate measures to prepare our campus should a member of our community ever have a confirmed case of coronavirus.

For additional information about the Coronavirus please go to the CDC website at: Coronavirus information at the CDC.
