2020.03.19: Rules Adopted by the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church Concerning the Coronavirus

The document was approved by the decision of the Holy Synod of March 17, 2020 (Journal № 30).

For the sake of pastoral care of individuals, as well as in response to the request of the sanitary authorities, while maintaining strong faith in God's Good Providence and in Divine Omnipotence, the following rules are adopted, taking into account the canonical and liturgical Traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Up until the epidemiological situation improves and appropriate instructions from diocesan administration on the full or partial termination of these instructions are received, the following regulations must be abided in parish churches, Patriarchal Parishes, Hierarchal & monastic metochions, as well as in diocesan monasteries of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Concerning the Communion of the Holy Mysteries of Christ

1. Bearing in mind that the offering of the Bloodless Sacrifice should never be cancelled in any case, because where there is no Eucharist, there is no Church life, and also that the Holy Body and Blood of Christ are partaken for the health of both soul and body (see, for example, the prayers of St. John Chrysostom, the 7th and 9th of the prayers before Holy Communion), taking into account, however, the historical practice of the Orthodox Church in the conditions of epidemics[1]— to distribute the Holy Mysteries of Christ and wipe the spoon with an alcohol-soaked cloth after each communicant (with regular changing of the solution) and then dipping it in water (with subsequent disposal of water according to the practice when washing the Communion Cloths).
2. Zapivka shall be prepared individually for each communicant in a disposable cup.
3. Disposable sanitary gloves should be used to distribute the antidoron.
4. Use the Communion Cloths for the Communion of the laity only to protect the Holy Mysteries from possibly falling on the floor and for wiping the Spoon. Paper napkins should be used to wipe the mouths of each communicant and should be subsequently burned. The Communion Cloths should be boiled and washed with due reverence after each liturgical use.
5. Communicants should refrain from kissing the Chalice.

Concerning the serving of the Sacraments of Baptism and Chrismation

6. Strictly adhere to the practice of changing and blessing water for each individual case. In this regard, the Sacrament of Baptism is to be performed only individually with intermediate disinfection (wiping) of the font (baptistery) with disinfectant liquid (the list of recommended liquids is attached).
7. For Holy Unction, as well as the anointing with oil, use a cotton swab (instead of a brush) and a paper napkin (instead of a sponge) followed by burning.

Concerning the serving of the Sacrament of Holy Unction

8. While serving “mass Holy Unction”, that is, the anointing of the sick in the churches, use a disposable brush (for example, cotton swabs), followed by burning for each parishioner individually.

Other instructions regarding the performance of services, pastoral practice, and parish life

9. Instead of presenting the Cross for veneration at the end of the Divine Liturgy and other services, it is recommended to place the Cross on the heads of parishioners.
10. Returning to the practice prescribed by the rubrics, which has undergone change in recent years, anointing at the All-Night Vigil is appointed only in cases when the Litiya and the blessing of oil are served. When the anointing is appropriate, use a single-use brush (for example, a cotton swab) for each parishioner separately with subsequent disposal. In all other cases, venerate the Holy Gospel or feastal icon (or Cross) after the polyeleos and receive a blessing by the priest. Wipe the Gospel and the icon (or Cross) after each individual using a disinfectant solution.
11. Clergy are advised to refrain from offering their hands for kissing.
12. Use disposable gloves to distribute the prosphora and the blessed bread at the All-Night Vigil.
13. Pay special attention to the cleanliness of items and liturgical vessels, sanitizing them after each liturgical use and thoroughly washing them with boiling water.
14. Suspend the work of Sunday schools, as well as parish groups and organizations, until further notice.
15. If possible, the social services of parishes, monasteries and metochions should help elderly parishioners at risk to deliver food and essential goods to their homes.

General Instructions

16. Rectors, Abbots & Abbesses should instruct parish, monastery and metochion staff to strictly observe general hygiene measures, including hand disinfection during the day (at least once every 2 hours).
17. Provide frequent airing of churches, as well as public buildings on parish and monastery complexes, setting a mandatory schedule for airing.
18. Regularly disinfect the surfaces of common touched areas (including places for writing commemorations, candle desks, etc.), as well as door handles.
19. Regularly disinfect icons in the church that parishioners regularly venerate.
20. Clergymen and parish, monastery and metochion staff should be responsible and attentive to their well-being. If one feels unwell, immediately inform the Rector and seek medical help.
21. Rectors and Abbots & Abbesses are required to measure the temperature before the start of the working day (for example, using a non-contact thermometer) for priests, clergy, and church staff who interact with a large number of parishioners.
22. Explain to parishioners that the implementation of the imposed regulations and restrictions should be perceived as following the words of the Holy Scripture: "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." (Matt. 4:7). Also explain to the parishioners that in case of symptoms of the flu or other infectious diseases, they should refrain from visiting churches for the sake of love for their neighbors and care for them.

Addendum

The following solutions are recommended for sanitary treatment:

  • products based on tertiary amides (for example, Evoline-4D);
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide;
  • 70% isopropyl alcohol (for example, Septolite antiseptic);
  • 75% ethyl alcohol;
  • chlorine-containing preparations (for cleaning rooms).

Press Service of Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia

[1] in particular: Communion of patients with infectious diseases after other communicants (or even at a separate service) with wiping after each communicant with a cloth and then burning it; the use of a separate Chalice and the Spoon for patients; washing them in vinegar and pouring it into a dry well (see S. V. Bulgakov. Handbook for Church Servers; Pidalion with the interpretations of the monk Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain - on rule VI.28).

2020.03.19: Statement Issued by the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church on the Coronavirus Situation

This document was adopted at a session of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church on March 11, 2020.

The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church has been following with concern the spread of the coronavirus infection throughout the world and its consequences for millions of people, many of whom not only face the threat of infection, but are also experiencing social and economic consequences therefrom.

Members of the Holy Synod express their condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this disease in China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and other countries (including the U.S. and Canada ‒ ed.).

Blessed before the Lord are the works of doctors and volunteers who develop and implement medical and preventive measures aimed at helping patients and stopping the further spread of the disease.

In times of epidemics, the Russian Orthodox Church always carried out Her witness ministry, without refusing anyone spiritual nourishment and full participation in Her Sacraments. We encourage people to exercise restraint, keep a clear head, and maintain prayerful calm. We call attention to the fact that a believer should not succumb to panic and fears associated with the spread of unverified information regarding the infection.

At the same time, it is unacceptable to take the coronavirus infection lightly, neglect medical prescriptions, ignore preventive measures, or risk the infection of oneself and others.

The Holy Synod considers it important to observe sanitary and hygienic preventive measures in a consistent and rigorous way in the parishes and monasteries, especially in those regions where the epidemiological situation is officially elevated, including the wider use of sanitary solutions for the disinfection of icon cases, which believers venerate, and disposable cups for zapivka.

If the coronavirus infection spreads in a specific region, additional preventative measures may be taken in consultation with the Hierarchy. The Holy Synod encourages the archpastors, pastors, monks, and laity of the Russian Orthodox Church to intensify their prayers for overcoming the disease and for the bestowal of strength on the doctors who are fighting it.

Документ принят на заседании Священного Синода Русской Православной Церкви 11 марта 2020 года.

Священный Синод Русской Православной Церкви с обеспокоенностью воспринимает распространение в мире коронавирусной инфекции и ея последствия для миллионов людей, многие из которых оказались не только перед угрозой заражения, но и испытали на себе социально-экономические последствия этого явления.

Члены Священного Синода выражают соболезнования родным и близким жертв этой болезни в Китае, Южной Корее, Иране, Италии, Франции, Германии, Испании и в других государствах (в том числе США и Канаде ‒ ред.).

Благословенными перед Господом являются труды врачей и добровольцев, которые разрабатывают и реализуют медицинские и профилактические меры, направленные на помощь больным и предотвращение дальнейшего распространения болезни.

Во времена эпидемий Русская Православная Церковь всегда несла свое свидетельское служение, не отказывая никому в духовном окормлении и полноценном участии в Ея Таинствах. Мы призываем к сдержанности, сохранению трезвомыслия и молитвенного спокойствия, обращаем внимание на то, что верующему человеку не следует поддаваться панике и страхам, связанным с распространением непроверенной информации об инфекции.

Вместе с тем, недопустимо легкомысленно относиться к коронавирусной инфекции, пренебрегать врачебными предписаниями, игнорировать профилактические меры, подвергая опасности заражения себя и окружающих.

Священный Синод считает важным последовательное и неукоснительное соблюдение санитарно-гигиенических мер профилактического характера на приходах и в монастырях, особенно в тех регионах, где эпидемиологическая обстановка официально признана тяжелой, в том числе более широкое применение санитарных растворов для дезинфекции кивотов икон, к которым прикладываются верующие, использование одноразовых стаканчиков для запивки.

В случае распространения в конкретном регионе коронавирусной инфекции могут быть по согласованию со Священноначалием применены дополнительные профилактические меры.
Священный Синод призывает архипастырей, пастырей, монашествующих и мирян Русской Православной Церкви к усиленной молитве о преодолении болезни и о даровании сил борющимся с нею врачам.
