All faith-based organizations are being asked to comply with federal, and state regulations and do their part to safeguard the spread of this virus since this is a national state of emergency.
Congregations should forecast a two to three-week closed-door policy or find innovative ways to continue to spread the message of faith.
Clergy should encourage seniors to remain at home, and not attend any social event or gatherings because they are the most vulnerable and susceptible to the virus.
Churches and places of worship should protect themselves with liability insurance if they continue to have an open-door policy to their services. This is another possible way that non-profits can be crippled while doing good in our communities.
The government does not want to exercise its full authority knowing that this is a time that faith is encouraged more than ever. But if congregating seems like a link to the expansion or spread of this virus it may have to very well exercise means to safeguard civilians by using local authorities to request for the closure of your closed-door services.
The concern behind this virus is the crippling of our healthcare system that can lead to severe casualties. That is why the recommendations (hygienics, and social distancing) have been set to minimize the loss of life and the spread of the virus.
Stimulus or "hybrid grants" are being offered to non-profit organizations through banking infrastructure. The feds are working with major banking intuitions to help assist with the crippling effects of the virus on our society. You can already contact your bank and request the necessary "hybrid grant" forms it will take 30-60 days to possibly receive a response. Non-profits applying may need to possess a 501c3.
