Montgomery County recently eased capacity restrictions for various places, including religious facilities.
Worshipers of all faiths are excited about the thought of having more people pray together, especially with some important religious holidays approaching.
MyMCM spoke with a few local faith-based community members to learn how they feel about capacity restrictions being eased at places of worship throughout the county.
According to the Montgomery County website, “Religious Facilities” are defined in the Local Order as churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, and other similar religious facilities of any faith in Montgomery County. The website also states that the total number of people allowed in a religious facility may not exceed 50% of the facility’s maximum occupancy. This number includes faith leaders, volunteers, and congregants.
