Houses of Worship
Houses of Worship were permitted to open in Phase 1 and allowed to resume services as of May 18, however secondary services such as childcare shall remain closed. Outdoor services are still encouraged.
Congregations and places of worship are an integral part of the community and have an important role to play in controlling the spread of Covid-19, particularly among more vulnerable populations.
Infection control measures instituted by faith-based organizations and their leadership will help mitigate community transmission while allowing important community-led programs to resume operation.
Places of Worship are encouraged to utilize the Commonwealth’s Covid-19 Control Template as a tool to help ensure best-practices are followed.
