In Pennsylvania, masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home. Masks are mandatory in all public spaces.
Pennsylvania is utilizing a three-phase matrix to determine when counties and/or regions are ready to begin easing some restrictions on work, congregate settings, and social interactions. View Governor’s Wolf’s phased reopening plan for Pennsylvania.
Businesses in the Commonwealth that are permitted to conduct in-person operations during the disaster emergency must take precautions to protect their employees, their employees’ families, and their communities as a whole. View the business guidance and business FAQ.

Re: UPDATE Delay of Reopening Activities
NC Governor, Roy Cooper issued Executive Order No. 147 on June 24, which extends the “Safer at
Home” Phase 2 of the reopening plan until July 17, 2020.
During this extension: Face coverings will be required in public places with some exceptions.
Strong recommendations from previous Executive Orders remain in force, including:
Given the continued –and, in many places, increasing — presence of COVID-19, these measures are
still the best tools we have as individuals and communities to slow its spread and limit its impact.

I have a question about copyright and streaming. We have CCLI license and streaming license at my church, but it does not cover many pieces for organ. Would the ASCAP license provide that protection for us to stream and include copyrighted organ music? I’ve read their website, and it seems like it would. https://www.ascap.com/music-users/types/church-or-ministry
Dear Worship Leader,
We have been instructing folks to follow CCLI and OneLicense guidelines, which, as you discovered, unfortunately, rarely cover instrumental/keyboard music.
Yes, it appears as though ASCAP offers a “WorshipCast” streaming license, which is set up in much the same manner as CCLI and OneLicense licenses – i.e., the fee structure is based on worship attendance:
A quick click brought up this fee structure:
1 – 199 (in attendance): $284.00
200 – 499 (in attendance): $424.00 (obviously it goes up from here)
Some further good news – the WorshipCast license offered above is controlled by Christian Copyright Solutions (a division of CCLI, and it appears as though purchase of this license would allow you to broadcast both ASCAP and BMI titles, opening up even more possibilities.
I don’t think, however, that this license includes SESAC titles; thus, if you wished to perform anything under the SESAC umbrella (Dan Gawthrop, for instance), you would need to approach that entity directly for a license:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Blessings to you in your music ministry!
