Diocese of NC sets guidelines regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus

Please be aware of the actions taken by the Bishops of the Diocese of North Carolina to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Statement Summary

IT HAS BEEN DECIDED that for a period of at least two weeks starting this weekend, including the next two Sundays, we are directing all of our churches to suspend all in-person worship. The two-week minimum time span is significant as it matches the known incubation period for the virus following exposure. As we approach Sunday, March 29, we will evaluate the situation and determine whether it is recommended and advisable for public services to resume.

All non-worship gatherings are also to be cancelled, postponed or moved online.
