For those of you in parishes that regularly
I haven't heard anything, but I think this is all too new for any decision to be communicated, if one had been made. We've got 3 more first communion Masses, and I can't imagine them limiting the cup at those -- at least not for the communicants.
Perhaps they'll just remind people who have symptoms of any kind not to receive, like they do during cold and flu season.

Two Catholic schools around here just closed as a precaution. Both are largely Hispanic, and one spokesperson mentioned that many families travel regularly to Mexico and/or have relatives in town for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. The schools expect to open Monday, but it seems to me that post-Cinco de Mayo closing might make more sense.
Our parish does not distribute the Precious Blood, so no change there.
Starting this Sunday,our Diocese is refraining from offering the chalice of precious blood.
I heard them discussing this on Relvant radio this morning.
