CALIFORNIA CHURCHES SHUT DOWN INDEFINITELY
The California Department of Health clarified Tuesday that indoor religious services in the state have been suspended indefinitely.
Over four months after California initially instituted a lockdown on March 19, the state issued a new order on Monday that rolled back reopening plans.
The guidance mandates that restaurants, bars, churches, fitness centers, hair salons and barber shops must be closed in 30 of the hardest hit counties in California.
“We’re going back into modification mode of our original stay at home order,” Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom said, according to The New York Times. “This continues to be a deadly disease.”
The DCNF pressed both the governor’s office and the California Department of Health on when Californians may attend indoor religious services again, and what punishments Californians face if they do attempt to attend banned services. Newsom’s office referred the DCNF to the California Department of Health.
