Guidance for Faith-Based Organizations

With continuing reports of COVID-19 outbreaks at indoor gatherings, the Governor still strongly encourages religious leaders and communities to conduct services remotely. Alternatively, drive-in services are permitted.

Phase 1 restricts indoor services to the lesser of 25% capacity or 200 individuals as long as 6 feet of distance is kept between people from different households. In-home services/counseling is restricted to no more than five individuals. Limitations on capacity does not include an organization's staff, but does include volunteers. 

  • No choir shall perform during the service.

  • Soloist performances are permitted.
  • Facial coverings must be worn at all times by congregation members even during congregational singing.
