DOH Warns Public About Possible Spread of COVID-19 Through Church Choirs

COVID-19 May Spread Through Church Choirs, DOH Says

The Department of Health (DOH) warned the public regarding the possible spread of coronavirus disease through Church choirs.

On Friday (December 11, 2020), the Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire warned the possible spread of the coronavirus disease through Church choirs. She also said that choirs must observe physical distancing measures.

Vergeire advised the choir members inside the Church to avoid facing each other while singing during gatherings inside the religious venue. She also encouraged them to face on direction to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19.

“Isa ‘yan sa dapat mapag-aralan at mapagsabihan rin of course ang ating mga kaparian at ating mga simbahan that this might be a cause of spreading the virus as well,” Vergeire said.

The DOH executive explained that the Church is also a venue for the transmission of the contagious disease. The agency would also release advisories and guidelines regarding the matter.

Churches, mosques, and other worship places under general community quarantine areas have been allowed by the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of the Emerging Infectious Diseases to hold worship service but must observe a maximum of 30 percent capacity only.
