From the Document: "As states begin to relax the restrictions on meetings and movement they imposed to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, it is vital that communities of faith play a leadership role in preventing the unnecessary spread of disease and death within their communities and among their neighbors. The resumption of more traditional forms of worship will be a cause for celebration, but only if it is accomplished responsibly, with due consideration for the most informed guidance for preserving the health and well being of worshippers and their neighbors alike. As of April 28, 2020, a number of states have begun to reopen, or plan to, in the coming days. While this is not the recommended guidance by many health care experts, following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggestions will be critical to prevent mass exposure and increased COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] infections. As we endure as one nation, let us be reminded that our actions directly impact life and death for all our friends and neighbors."
