I'm surprised to see this.  Must be the direction from your branch is different from ours.  We were instructed to do NO PUBLIC WITNESSING AT ALL no matter what the government said we could or couldn't do.

It seems that restrictions vary from one area to another even in our state of Texas, some areas people still meet together at the hall and do public witnessing because the number of cases is so very low.

The US Branch instructed Bodies of Elders   "24. All forms of the public ministry are discontinued until further advised by the branch office....." are you indicating that certain areas of of Texas have recieved additional instructions from the branch authorizing public ministry? or is it some areas setting there own standards?

We had a Congregation here that started using their building for "participant only" meetings when the "mandatory stay at home" order was lifted.


That was promptly discontinued when the CO heard about it - making reference to the letter @Old quoted above.


Like one of our Elders is fond of saying, "Until I see it in writing, I will stick with the last direction"

Keep also in mind that this picture appears to be from Belgium (cart publications in French plus the fence behind the brothers with an URL ending .be) and not from the US. Different branches seem to have tried cart witnessing temporarily when Covid cases in the area have been low. I think we had a member on the forums posting at some point that they were allowed to return to cart work in Bosnia and Herzegovina. However, this arrangement was later put on hold again.
