Governor Evers Clarifies – Churches Considered Essential

Governor Evers Clarifies – Churches Considered Essential

As of 1:50 p.m. today, Governor Evers clarified and corrected what county departments have been telling churches about holding Easter-related services in their parking lots with people staying in their cars while they attend the service.

See his response below:

“Today, Gov. Evers reiterated options for religious gatherings and services. Religious organizations and places of worship have inquired about opportunities to continue offering faith-based services and gatherings while still complying with the governor’s “safer at home” order.

Under the governor’s order, churches and religious entities are considered essential. Any gathering must include fewer than 10 people at a time if it occurs in a room or confined space. Thus, churches and religious entities wishing to conduct services while still complying with the governor’s order may, for example, conduct services 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.”
