PITTSBURGH, Pa.-- The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh has closed all churches in the area.

Bishop David Zubik says some priests have  tested positive for COVID-19. That’s prompted the Bishop to suspend all sacraments—all weddings, funerals, and baptisms have been suspended.

“Although we are not able to celebrate the sacraments publicly due to extraordinary circumstances, Jesus is still with us and working through us,” Bishop Zubik said.

Churches will live-stream of masses.
