Coronavirus fears close Lourdes pools

The Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes announced that, although pilgrims were still welcome, the pools the sick bathe in hoping for healing would be closed temporarily due to fears about the coronavirus. “Our first concern will always be the safety and health of the pilgrims and the shrine’s working community,” said a note posted Feb. 28 on the shrine’s website.
