The Archdiocese of Omaha is allowing catholic churches to return to in-person services. They are encouraging people at a high risk from COVID-19 to not attend in person.

Tim McNeil is Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha. He said estimates about half of churches are reopening.

“Most of the large churches are not gonna open just yet because it’s a bigger task to have to sanitize and clean the church between services," McNeil said. "So they’re trying to get the best plan in place and the highest number of volunteers to help do that.”

Churches can only hold in person worship services. Fundraisers or fellowship events are not allowed over the 10 person limit.
