Church opening guidelines: When will churches reopen? What are the rules?


How will social distancing work in places of worship?

With the two metre rule being reduced to one metre where the former is not possible, social distancing is going to be a little easier for everyone.

In places of worship, social distancing rules will need to be followed.

For example, priests might have to dole out holy communion from behind a perspex screen.

The ritual of priests offering wine to worshippers will be scrapped, too, with priests drinking all the wine themselves.

More specific guidelines will follow and may vary from one place of worship to another.
