Some areas of the country, yours mine do not have major outbreaks. They feel immune, where I live, which granted has a west border with King County and is only just 100 miles from the epicenter in Washington State, the minute there was a report of one (1) person with a presumptive positive for COVID-19 every store shelf was empty of hand wipes, sanitizer and alcohol. The population in my whole county is 45,000.
Ellensburg is the largest city and I visited 5 stores between Thurs. and Fri. empty shelves, I did not even look for bleach as I have some, 1/2 gallon. There are now at least 3 and perhaps 4 last I checked Kittitas County web site.
So, unless they begin getting ill they seem to think it can not hit them. Hey maybe it won't if they don't go ANYwhere away from their group.
From the link:
A spokesperson for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, Steven Scoutas, said anyone showing signs of illness should stay away from church gatherings.
"But once we decide to go to church, we believe there is absolutely no possibility of contracting disease from the holy cup," he said.
"We believe that no disease or illness can exist in holy communion, which we believe is the body and blood of Christ," Reverend Scoutas said.
They apparently know there isn't immunity or they wouldn't ask people to stay away.
But their hubris is to be so much stronger that they'll subject their people to a disease risk rather than back down from their show -- truly disgusting.
