My biggest worry is that asymptomatic people can still spread the virus--even if wearing gloves and masks, carrying it in their cars, etc. Also, do we need to be using up valuable gloves and masks right now? I love the idea otherwise, but what about sending a liturgy well enough ahead of time for people to gather items as they feel comfortable.

I think we trust in a loving and grace-filled God who is with us even if we are unable to be baptized during a prolonged time of crisis, and counsel our families accordingly.
