Gov. Tim Walz (D) Allows Places Of Worship To Reopen Under New Guidance From CDC, 5/23/20

Gov. Tim Walz Allows Places Of Worship To Reopen Under New Guidance From CDC, 5/23/20

Gov. Tim Walz announced Saturday that places of worship will soon be allowed to reopen at 25% occupancy, as long as they follow social distancing and other health guidelines, amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The decision came one day after President Donald Trump declared religious services “essential” and called on governors across the country to reopen them this weekend.

... the state will allow churches, mosques, synagogues and other worship centers to reopen as early as Wednesday, May 27.

Walz signed an executive order on Saturday that amends his previous orders — to allow for safe worship, weddings, and funerals.

The order says places of worship, funeral homes, and wedding venues must:
1. Ensure six feet of physical distancing between households.
2. Remain under 250 people or 25% of normal capacity, whether indoors or outdoors.
3. Create a COVID-19 preparedness plan in accordance with the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines.

By the way, previously under Walz's executive orders religious services etc. were allowed beginning May 18 indoors as well as outdoors (Kurt Daudt (R) (Minnesota House Minority Leader) was misleading when he said: “Why are churches limited to 10 people outdoors while hundreds of people can gather in the aisles of big box stores?” )

The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords wishes to remind His followers:

Matthew 6:5,6

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the
hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the
synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they
may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They
have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy
closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray
to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father
which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

1. people move in and out of big box stores quickly

Keep your service under 20 minutes and you have reduced the risk accordingly

2. The Catholic bishops in Washington state

are not opening churches out of their "deep respect for life".

Love to hear what Hebda says about that.
