Cabinet Committee decisions regarding numbers attending Mass, 3 July 2020:

 
From email received from the Archdiocese at 18:43 on Friday, 3 July 2020 

Please see below the statement issued by the Government Press Office this evening following this afternoon's Cabinet Committee Review on Ireland’s Covid 19 Response. 

Each Parish should review the new guidance carefully to see what is now possible within their individual Church settings. 

Places of Worship
Detailed Covid-19 Guidance has been developed for religious services. The Cabinet Committee reviewed the guidance, which state that an assessment should be carried out for each premises to determine how many can attend within the requirements of social distancing. 
 
The Cabinet Committee decided that where the size of the premises allows for a capacity of greater than 50 this may be permitted only where:
  • Social distancing guidelines are adhered to
  • The premises can be subdivided into distinct sections (cordoned or marked appropriately) of not more than 50 persons in each section
  • There is a minimum of 4m between sections
  • Each section having its own entrance/exit route
  • There are separate arrangements for elements of the service involving close contact, e.g. the distribution of Holy Communion
  • Strictly no movement of people between sections before, during or after the service
  • The premises is well-ventilated.

Account must also be taken regarding the risk of congregation by people outside before and after any services, having regard to outdoor overall limits on mass gatherings and arrangements for staggered exiting after ceremonies.  The use of face coverings is strongly recommended for such indoor settings.
