From CNN's Jamiel LynchA Mobile, Alabama, pastor has shut down his church again and is going back to online services after several staff and members have tested positive for Covid-19 since reopening.Rev.

Allen tells CNN that the church was following all guidelines set by the state.“We shut down the church before the state even asked us,” Allen said. “We had already put plans into place on how we would continue on.”He said that during the order from Gov. Kay Ivey, the church, which has around 1,500 members, remained shuttered and went to online services. When the governor’s office issued guidelines that allowed the churches to reopen, they were ready.

Allen said the church practiced social distancing and cut occupancy down to 130 people per service. They even had to add up to five services a day just to accommodate everyone. Allen also said church members wore masks and the church was cleaned regularly.

Inhis blog, Allen warned other pastors that it happened very fast.“One week from the time I received the first phone call reporting symptoms, we were aware of more than a dozen people showing symptoms. What was even more shocking was that we could track four generations of transmission from the original person. We are two weeks in, and the numbers are growing at a faster rate now than they were last week,” he wrote in his blog.

Allen also said isolation and social distancing work. “I’m convinced that one of the reasons the virus hasn’t spread faster and farther is that we have been following procedures designed to isolate sick people and keep everyone else socially distanced. At the same time, we had gotten comfortable, and on a few occasions, we were a little lax in those policies. We can trace almost all of the infections back to one of those times,” he wrote.

Top 5 celebrities houses that worth $1.2B DOLLARS celebrities,nba2k21,letthemusicplay,mambaforever Good for the Vice President and President for taking care of the men and women that take care of them. And I’m sure that those young men and women were taking measures not to infect the Vice President and others that were around them

Was in South Carolina yesterday. McDonald's would not let you walk in without a mask on. Said it was a city order. Was kind of shocked. NC_Governor needs to do the same. Get this man out of office. He can go live with his buddy Bill. Ppl...just wear a stinkin mask, lol. It really isnt that big a deal. Good grief, we have way too many 2 year olds disguised as adults out there.

Sounds like more lawsuits coming his way. He’s on a role. Probably not enforceable GOOD!! Get me a mask that keeps me SAFE and I'll wear it to bed. yes I don't want to wear one. Alot of people have lung issues and can't. Hhhmmmm I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but this reminds me of that part of the Bible where people won’t be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast... not saying it is! Just reminds me of it. I acknowledge not everyone believes the Bible... and i’m out of characters.........

Good! Every place should do this! It's about time. All these idiots running without mask and spreading this virus We need this in Michigan! Top 5 celebrities houses that worth $1.2B DOLLARS celebrities,nba2k21,letthemusicplay,mambaforever I don't get what everyones problem is with wearing masks when in shops and other places. Works in many countries and has helped to drive corona cases down to single digits in areas most days. Not something that seems likely in the US tho

Communist restrictions... CNN you are happy you paved the way for this JustSayNo Better to share the traditional antiviral approaches. If a company knew them, disguised the internally then externally, talked about health care benefits, got welcomed to the healthcare jungle, with a name that drains the jungle (headquartered in his state), would Inslee notice?

Those who refuse to wear a mask should also refuse to be put on a ventilator because they have tightly fitting masks. Soon drs will have to decide who gets a ventilator. GovHerbert 👀 Good job Governor!! But you don't have to wear one while you protest and tear down the wrong statues No shirt. No shoes. No mask. No service. Simple!

Not possible! It won’t work! steeletalk He should just be stepping down immediately Of course he is! YouAintBlack he did such a great job with the CHAZ debacle For anyone who thinks this is wrong or unconstitutional, I bet you’d want a surgeon to wear a mask during open heart surgery for 8 hours, bc the surgeon could infect you by breathing. No difference here. Breathing is the transmission of covid and most of us don’t want it.

😂 Why do some individuals have such a problem with wearing a mask. It's a matter of respect and keeping themselves and others safe. If children can understand the importance of that, adults should be able to. I guess you can't educate pork or 'entitled egocentric' people'. Well he sounds like a tyrannical traitor. He deserves peaceful protesters in his yard.

Jay Inslee should be charged with treason for letting two African American Kids be shot in a non peaceful occupied protest zone. Hmmm. The Bible talks about not being able to buy nor sell without the mark of the Beast. I suggest everyone brush up on end time prophecy, even if you don't believe. Spooky how dead accurate they were 4,000 years ago and describing the events of today. Don't me. Jesus

Should be a FEDERAL LAW but realDonaldTrump aka PresidentPumpkinHead thinks COVID19 is all going to disappear Lol how about JayInslee stops harassing healthy people and sets a proclamation that obese and elderly people need to provide a doctors note to walk outside their house?! Otherwise STAY HOME! This would actually HELP vs coercing healthy people with a piece of cloth on their face

So he can’t force people to wear masks, but can use the licensing power of the state to refuse them goods and services. SleepyJay ACLU probably already filed a case How the fuck does a governor get this much power? And are the people in Washington going to stand for this? Good! About time. Come on Lone Rangers !!! Wear a mask !!!

Its look like good Fascist government. My body my choice. Come on GovMikeDeWine MikeDeWine What are you waiting for? Wearing a mask on an 8 hour shift in a hospital or a supermarket or Target IS HARD, but for 20 minutes while you’re buying something or in a bank, wow VICTORY FOR COOL MASKS! Finally a governor with some balls

Freedom of association, this won't last

'A mask is not a symbol': These restaurants had seen too many disrespectful customers. They closed rather than serve them.'Unfortunately, there were multiple situations where our staff was disrespected and treated rudely,' restaurant Mexican Fiesta in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, said in a Facebook post Sunday. Hi, If you need a business website. I am professional web designer. This bullshit scam virus is OVER. Time to move on If I didn't know God's promises after the flood, I might think God sent this plague to kill off the stupid people who won't wear masks. Silver lining: most of them would have voted for realDonaldTrump President Manslaughter Traitor.
