Already in many parts of the world the churches have opened their doors to meet as usual, but for some governments, this still remains an issue due to the fact that it can multiply cases of contagion, although for many faithful this is an uprising of the “devil” as they say there are no restrictions in supermarkets and other places.
In California County, people can already attend the temple, but cannot sing. The California Department of Public Health said the following:
“Practices and performances present an increased likelihood for transmission of Covid-19 through contaminated exhaled droplets and should occur through alternative methods like internet streaming.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, singing in cults is a way of spreading the virus, since while singing particles of saliva come out.
It must be taken into account that California has already had 24,000 cases of coronavirus and that it recently had its highest number of infections, about 6,367 cases. Therefore, these figures have led to the restrictions being much more severe.
The order issued also states:
“Places of worship must take reasonable measures to remind congregants and visitors that they must use face coverings and practice physical distancing and should frequently wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer, and not touch their face”.
May God bring peace to His beloved church and to the whole world and may we soon be victorious from this.
