LA Archdiocese announces closure of churches to help stem spread of coronavirus

Churches in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will be closed to the public until at least April 19 as part of updated guidelines aimed at helping stem the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).

The “extraordinary steps” announced by Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez late Tuesday also include closing parish offices to the public and suspending regular confession times.

“Our community of faith is fully committed to doing all we can to limit the spread of this global public health threat,” said the Archbishop in a statement March 24. “We are taking these extraordinary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of the faithful and the public, as well as all who continue to serve in our parishes and ministries.”
