Dear Faith and/or Community Leader:
On behalf of the Office of Governor Ralph S. Northam and the Virginia Department of Health, we want to thank you for your assistance in providing your feedback and questions raised during our inaugural faith and community leaders call on Monday March 23, 2020.
We want to continue to be a resource during this time of COVID-19. This Faith Communities Guidance document provides general guidance for diverse faith communities across all major ideologies and belief systems. This document is intended to be inclusive with the understanding that as new information emerges or additional needs or circumstances are identified, this document will be revised. It was developed with information from existing sources, such as FAQs from the Virginia Department of Health, the National Funeral Directors Association, and the Center for Disease Control websites.
