An Update from Archbishop Coakley

Those who are ill … elderly … high risk, or are caring for someone who is ill need to stay home

Archbishop Coakley implemented new precautions to protect against coronavirus, the flu and other illnesses. If you are ill, think you might be ill, are caring for someone who is ill or have been exposed to the coronavirus, PLEASE do not go to Mass.

“Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt announced today a state of emergency that will limit public spaces in Oklahoma City to no more than 50 people. At this time, the announcement doesn’t extend to churches, but it may in the future.

We will continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation and will adjust our precautions as needed.

Most importantly, those who are ill, have a fever, are elderly, are at high risk, or are caring for someone who is ill need to stay home.

I am granting a general dispensation for all Catholics from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City through March 31.”
