The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines Friday for the reopening of houses of worship after President Trump said he is deeming them “essential" after being closed under coronavirus lockdowns.
"The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now -- for this weekend," Trump said as he delivered a statement in the White House briefing room. "If they don't do it, I will override the governors."
The CDC acknowledged that "millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life" but also warned that "gatherings present a risk for increasing the spread of COVID-19."
The CDC encourages face coverings for staff and congregants over the age of 2 and for those who do not have severe breathing issues for the duration of services.
