"Even in the absence of a civil requirement, masks should be worn by all and social distancing should be maintained appropriately, including in the communion line."
"For now, it would be best to refrain from unnecessary circulation in church, from processions and from greeting people before and after Mass."
"With regard to music, it would be best to keep it at a minimum or reserved only for a cantor/organist. If more than one is singing, they should be at least 5 feet apart and 12 feet apart from the priest and others." I take it from this restriction that will be NO CONGREGATIONAL SINGING FOR NOW.
The Archbishop also regrets the burden of these restrictions."Charity, however, as well as the duty to take reasonable care of our physical health and to protect that of others, requires measures commensurate with the seriousness of the threat that is posed. I am grateful for your cooperation. I pray daily for your good health and that of the people.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Leonard P Blair
Archbishop of Hartford"
