FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) -- Churches across Kentucky have been forced to think outside the box during these days of social distancing.
One of the ways some churches have been meeting together is through drive-in services using sound systems or radio transmitters while members stay in their cars on the parking lots. Gov. Andy Beshear weighed in on the drive-in services during Tuesday’s press conference.
With Easter Sunday a little more than a week away, Beshear offered the following guidelines for churches to meet through drive-in services:
“If all of those can be followed, I think this type of service can be something people can feel together on,” Beshear said. He thanked churches for thinking of ways to help people abide by the Center for Disease Control guidelines.
“The last thing we want is for an Easter worship service, which is about rebirth, to ultimately spread the virus and actually harm people,” he said.
Beshear urged congregations to continue to avoid meeting together in person for the health and protection of the members.
