Bishops issue guidance to Catholics on the Coronavirus

All parishes in the Diocese have been notified that advice and information on the Coronavirus can be found on the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England & Wales website, where guidelines have been prepared by Professor Jim McManus of the Healthcare Executive

Bishop Paul Mason’s foreword includes the following:-
“At the time of writing the risk to the public from Coronavirus remains
low. We issue these guidelines purely to enable Catholic churches and
organisations to find in one place the relevant information to them.
Because this is a rapidly changing situation, we may change these
guidelines as the situation changes. In the meantime, it will be crucial
to ensure as you read these you check the latest guidance from
Government. At the time of writing our guidance focuses on the
hygiene measures needed to disrupt the spread of Coronavirus should
we get a number of cases in England and Wales, but at present we
remain as individuals in England and Wales at low risk.”
