Some Minnesota religious leaders say gatherings are still too risky

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Religious leaders in Minnesota are free to open their doors to worshippers once again with some precautions due to the coronavirus, but many believe it’s too soon to resume services.
Gov. Tim Walz is allowing places of worship to reopen at 25% capacity Wednesday.
While the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis made plans to reopen its parishes, other religious leaders say the risks of such gatherings are still too great.
The 42 rabbis of the Minnesota Rabbinical Association were unanimous in saying they will not yet open their religious facilities since “the peak of COVID-19 has yet to come.”
