Although the federal court overruled Gov. Andy Beshear’s executive order about holding in-person church services, LCDHD advices to not go full steam ahead with them.
Environmental Health Director Stuart Spillman said that while they believe that the right to religion is protected and is important, they encourage churches to not meet until they feel they can do so safely.
Guidance for churches generated by the governor’s office is available at the district’s website at www.lcdhd.org by clicking on the COVID-19 banner, scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting the link for guidance for places of worship.
Spillman said the district and state health departments recommend churches still meet alternatively over Internet or drive in services.
LCDHD warned the district to beware of a scam where someone calls pretending to be the LCDHD and offering supplemental insurance. Crabtree stated that no one really from the LCDHD or a local health department would ask for private information and the only thing they would call about is for contact investigating and asking someone to quarantine.
