In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, His Eminence Hilarion, Metropolitan of Eastern America & New York, has strongly encouraged all of the faithful to adhere to health and safety restrictions currently being put in place by local authorities. Unfortunately, this means that some parishes are closed to the public, with services being performed by the clergy and choir alone.

For those who wish to observe the divine services and pray, several parishes are offering Internet live-streaming. Some parishes are permitted by their state governments to remain open, but – either to maintain attendance within the current allowable maximum or for the benefit of those who cannot attend for their own health reasons – are also streaming their services online.
