Pandemic Preparation - Liturgical Protocols for COVID-19
All COVID-19 Public Health Orders were lifted on March 15, 2022. As such, our archdiocese is entering a new phase with regards to COVID-19.
Although parishes are no longer legally bound to follow COVID prevention measures, they must carefully consider their own road map on how to ease their way out of the pandemic, such as when to phase out social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing, the wearing of masks, whether those persons wishing to receive communion on the tongue continue to wait that all other members of the congregation have received Communion in the hand before coming up to receive the Host, etc.
