California, along with many other states, is beginning to reopen. In Los Angeles County, starting tomorrow, indoor operations will resume for schools, restaurants, gyms, movie theatres, museums, zoos, and other venues…with social distancing and masking restrictions, of course. Even though we are going from the highest restriction Purple Tier to a lower restriction Red Tier, we are not out of the woods yet. Los Angeles County continues to experience substantial rates of COVID-19 transmission and the danger that COVID-19 poises to our community has not subsided.
So, how does all this impact the church? What are we going to do differently?
