All the registered churches in Tianjin were unable to reopen after being notified by the Tianjin CC&TSPM.
The document, released last Sunday, said that the churches in Tianjian would continue to be closed in accordance with requirements by local authorities to ensure "the health of believers." All religious activities are still prohibited.
Last week there was a resurgence of positive COVID-19 affected cases in Beijing, which is about 138 kilometers away from Tianjin.
