When are churches reopening in the United States?

Many of the 50 states of the country are starting their first phase of slowly reopening the economy after feeling the pressure of President Donald Trump, who for weeks has been telling governors to end their quarantine period.

With this focus from the President, many states' plans have begun and those include public places, like churches, around the country. People will be mandated to keep following social distance guidelines until further notice in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Each state will give their own green light for churches to open but 30 of the 50 states are close to phase two of reopening businesses and public places. Each church will have to take their respective precautionary measures to resume activities.

This means that during mass people will have to sit at least six feet apart of each other, limiting the amount of those that can attend at the same time, and they won't be able to exchange handshakes during the occasion.

Experts believe that by the month of September the United States will be less strict with the social distancing guidelines and people may go back to a more normal life, having contact with others during their daily activities. This would include churches around the country and would be welcome news to some communities where more than 3,000 people attend mass at the same time on Sundays.
