YPSILANTI, Mich. (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Thursday the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would issue guidance for reopening churches very soon, possibly later on Thursday or Friday.
Churches, like many businesses across the United States, have been mostly shuttered in an attempt to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, though some states have allowed them to reopen with limitations.
“We’re going to open our churches again. I think CDC is going to put something out very soon … They’re going to be issuing something today or tomorrow on churches,” Trump said.
