Churches stop in-person services as Kansas sets virus record

Coronavirus in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Some churches in Kansas have suspended indoor, in-person worship services and the capital city’s zoo even has tightened its rules as the state set another record for new coronavirus cases.

The bishop of the Episcopal Church diocese for eastern Kansas this week directed its congregations to suspend indoor, in-person services through Dec. 13.

The United Methodist Church bishop for Kansas and Nebraska also encouraged its churches to suspend in-person services until further notice if they are in counties “identified as being in critical or dangerous statuses.”

Kansas averaged a record 2,553 new confirmed and probable coronavirus cases daily for the seven days ending Friday.
