The dioceses are closed until further notice.
In a statement, the Diocese of Camden said it is suspending Masses because the majority of its church-goers are the most vulnerable to COVID-19.
The dioceses will make exceptions for baptisms, confirmations and weddings, if attendance is under 50 people.
Camden priests will also continue to visit the sick, but they will take “all necessary germ protection precautions in place at an individual’s home, nursing home or hospital.” Archdiocese visitations, however, are suspended.
Funerals may take place in area parishes, again, keeping social distancing in mind.
Essential offices will remain operational in Camden.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s suspension of public Masses goes into effect Wednesday at noon.
At this point, Camden Bishop Dennis Sullivan said the diocese is monitoring the situation and has made no decisions regarding the observance of Holy Week and Easter in April.
Church leaders in Boston, Chicago, Detroit and Phoenix have announced similar measures.
