For many faith traditions, gathering together for worship is at the heart of what it means to be a community of faith. However, gatherings present a risk for increasing spread of COVID-19. When deciding whether to attend worship services, consider factors that impact the risk of COVID-19 transmission, including how closely and for how long you will interact with people, the number of different people with whom you will interact, how well your place of worship is ventilated, and whether other people will be wearing face coverings. Your own ability to wear a face covering and risk for developing severe illness from COVID-19 may be important considerations as well. More information about stopping the spread of COVID-19 can be found here. Information specific to child care and K-12 schools may also be helpful for some faith-based organizations.
