LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- The mask requirement at Catholic Diocese of Lexington churches has been reinstated, according to an email from Bishop John Stowe sent to the Diocese’s Parishes and Missions.

“As Covid infections continue to rise and with greater understanding of how easily the Delta variant spreads, effective immediately the mask requirement for all people at Mass, all liturgies and all other meetings that take place on parish grounds is reinstated. Furthermore, congregational singing should be greatly reduced or eliminated until further notice. All people eligible for vaccination should also seek it as soon as possible,” Stowe writes.
