Diocesan COVID-19 Information

Published in the issue.

Diocesan Offices Remain Closed

The diocesan offices on the Cathedral Close at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue remain closed, and the Bishop’s staff continue to work from home. As of the time of writing, no date has yet been determined for a beginning of what will, when it happens, be a carefully-staged return to the office.

Diocesan COVID-19 Information

The diocese has set up a special website at 2020.dioceseny.org with information and news related to the coronavirus pandemic. There is also a feed of the latest updates on the right of the home page at dioceseny.org.

Resumption of Public Worship

Many churches in the diocese have now resumed public worship, beginning at the start of July in accordance with Bishop Dietsche’s instructions, which also laid down very specific requirements for distancing and hygiene practices. His letter may be found in full, together with other COVID-related communications and information, at 2020.dioceseny.org.
