IN Governor Gives Social Distancing Guidelines For Easter Services
Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced COVID-19 related social distancing guidelines for Easter weekend during his daily briefing on Thursday, afternoon (April 9th, 2020).
- The Governor encouraged church buildings and other locations of worship be closed.
- Conducting services through LIVE stream or virtually would be best to help slow the spread of the virus.
- A minimum number of personnel should be used to conduct the service.
- Anyone not speaking during services should wear a mask.
- Communion should be either pre-packaged or brought from home.
Governor Holcomb strongly urged Hoosiers to follow these guidelines while speaking of his own Christian upbringing and putting others first. He said that although Easter needs to be different this year, it still has the same meaning and THAT will never change.
