Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order does not allow for gatherings of more than 10 people in a confined space at a time.
Governor Evers April 9 Press Release does allow for religious services to be conducted via:
- Parking lots with congregants staying in cars, avoiding person-to-person contact;
- Streaming online; and
- Having small gatherings (fewer than 10 people in each room) with multiple services.
While an individual is safe in their car with the windows rolled up, it is extremely difficult to manage these types of gatherings. Areas such as parking lots also have limited access to restrooms, and participants may be tempted to get out of their cars to stretch and enjoy the weather, creating potential for the virus to spread through interaction. If you participate in any gatherings such as this, please be mindful to follow the Safer at Home guidelines including physical distancing of 6 feet and wearing of cloth face coverings.
