Diocese of El Paso will require masks for all indoor activities

Citing the rising number of COVID-19 cases Bishop Mark Seitz is requiring that masks be worn by unvaccinated and vaccinated people alike, age 3 and above, for all indoor functions.

Officials said the change was effective immediately in the El Paso and West Texas regions of the Diocese.

“In an effort to use whatever tools are at hand to limit the contagion within our communities, we will be returning to this protocol. We are committed to doing all we can to protect the health and safety of all diocesan faithful,” Bishop Mark Seitz said.

“This mask requirement within our diocese will help limit the spread of the deadly disease in El Paso and West Texas.”

Diocesan officials added that no other changes to protocols will be put in place at this time, but further restrictions will be enacted in the near future if the situation requires it.

Bishop Seitz asks the prayers of the community pleading for a very swift end to this pandemic.

The Diocese continues to encourage all diocesan faithful to receive their vaccination as soon as possible.
