Coronavirus in the Diocese of Limburg

Frankfurt, 15 March 2020 -- In view of the increasing spread of the coronavirus, the diocese of Limburg wrote to all parishes and institutions and asked them to take special precautionary measures to protect against infection. There is currently no reason for the churches to be closed across the board. However, the situation in the districts is different. The specially set up work staff in the Episcopal Ordinariate encourages parishes and institutions to decide independently whether, for example, the service offered can be maintained. The recommendations of the authorities and the Robert Koch Institute should play a significant role in this. Current information on the services offered is available in the respective parishes.
