My wife and I attended the Ash Wednesday mass at St. Patrick's Church. I'm already 64 years old. I saw a guy on my right side coughed several times on his right hand. During the greeting of peace, he offered his right hand to me and I shook it. I think I made a mistake in shaking his hand. In that situation what advice can you give to that person and to me? Knowing that I could encounter such situation again, is it still safe for me to go church?

You’re 64 years old, with all do respect you should have enough common sense when it comes to how to deal with the situation. Offer a smile and don’t extend your hand, but instead offer a non physical type of greeting.

Good to see this in print. It was announced at the conclusion of Mass this weekend. Perhaps Communion on the tongue and from the chalice should be temporarily suspended as the current Coronavirus is far more serious than influenza.
