2020-09-29 COVID-19 Guidelines for In-Person Indoor Gatherings

While we recognize that many parishes have already addressed most of the issues raised in these guidelines, during the past few months the Diocesan office has received a number of inquiries, and we believed it might be helpful to organize our guidance in one document. Note that these guidelines are subject to change as we learn more about COVID-19, so please stay abreast of CDC and Department of Health guidelines.
