CWN Editor's Note: Bishop John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky, has told priests in his diocese that they may not visit the sick if they have not received Covid vaccination.

Celebrating Mass at his cathedral on September 12, the bishop directed a deacon to read an announcement, telling parishioners that their pastor and his associate were not vaccinated, “so people can decide if they wanted to attend Mass where they were celebrating.”
