A lot of U.S. news stories in the last couple of days are describing the case of the recently deceased Bishop Gerald O. Glenn, of the New Deliverance Evangelistic Church of Richmond, VA, who was preaching to a packed house during the Covid-19 outbreak:
An evangelical pastor died of COVID-19 just weeks after proudly showing off how packed his Virginia church was — and vowing to keep preaching "unless I’m in jail or the hospital."
Happily announcing he was being "controversial" by being "in violation" of safety protocols — with "way more than 10 people" at the church — he vowed to keep his church open "unless I’m in jail or the hospital."
None of the news stories I've read so far indicate what specific recommendations, and by whom, he disregarded. It appears that the governor of Virginia didn't issue a social-distancing executive order until after March 22nd (the date of the "controversial" service described).
Given that "religious nut gets just deserts" is a pretty standard trope in news stories (which might cause lazy reporters not to bother looking closer):
Did the bishop actually defy specific social-distancing orders that applied to Richmond, Virginia?
