RE: Coronavirus Update
With the news that cases of coronavirus have been reported within the territory of the Archdiocese of Detroit, we wish to remind clergy, parishes and schools of the recommendations that were initially shared on February 28. These recommendations are available on our website at www.aod.org/emergencyresponse/.

We have been and will continue to, monitor news concerning the coronavirus. We are preparing for any potential impact on our parishes, schools and other ministries, and will follow any recommendations from local, state and federal officials and will continue to update our website with new information and resources as they become available.

Parishes and schools are encouraged to share a link to www.aod.org/emergencyresponse/ their parishioners through whichever means you deem most appropriate. Sample language is provided should you wish to use it:

“The Archdiocese of Detroit has been and will continue to, monitor news concerning coronavirus. They, along with [parish/school name] are preparing for any potential impact that may affect our [church/school] and will follow any recommendations from local, state and federal officials to ensure the safety of our community. For the latest information on our local Catholic Church’s response, please visit www.aod.org/emergencyresponse.”

The webinar is scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2020, at 2:30 pm. Register here. The session will be recorded for those who will not have the ability to attend on Friday.
