Fever Check! One Church Guards against H1N1

Ad Feedback

With President Obama having declared the swine flu a national emergency, one church is being proactive in guarding its congregation from the nasty virus.

Valley Bible Fellowship Church is a welcoming place, with one exception: kids with a fever are denied entrance to Sunday school.

It's part of an effort to curb the spread of the swine flu.

"I think for all of us to just sit back and do nothing, we're just going to let this get out of hand," said Valley Bible Fellowship Pastor Ron Vietti.

Teachers take the temperatures of children before they're allowed contact with the other kids.

"We're looking for temperatures over 99 degrees," Sunday school teacher Kelly Wanbaugh said.

Some members don't like their church resembling a doctor's office. But since the swine flu is targeting children, this church isn't taking any chances.

"We believe everybody should do their part to help curb this swine flu," Pastor Vietti said.

Although no child has shown up with a fever yet, the temperature-check will be a precursor to Sunday school until the swine flu threat is over.
