COVID-19 – Guidance for churches!

Churches should be following best-hygiene practices including advising parishioners with coughs and sneezes to refrain from handshaking during The Peace and to receive Communion in one kind only.  It is also best practice for churches to have hand-sanitizer available for parishioners to use.  In addition, priests presiding at the
Eucharist, communion administrators and servers should wash their hands, preferably with an alcohol-based (minimum 60%) hand-sanitiser.  Intinction is not recommended (even by celebrants or communion-administrators) as this represents an infection
transmission route.
