President Trump Calls Houses Of Worship Essential During Coronavirus Pandemic

The President stated that forcefully closing houses of worship “was simply wrong” when liquor stores and abortion clinics were allowed to remain open.

I’m quite inclined to agree with the President as he has stated that our personal worship is essential to many people within the US, it is for some the very fabric that holds them together. There are ways Churches can hold services in a safer and more guarded way by utilizing some guideline recommended from organizations like the CDC.

Even outside service might be an option where people have the ability to freely distance themselves from others while still being together. Common sense will play a huge roll when these types of gatherings are held. Think about ways to minimize putting a lot of people in a tight space, those are more prone to spread the virus among more people.
