Family members and Communion

Now that our churches are closed, is it acceptable for family members to give each other Communion?

“’We encourage our congregations at this time to reserve the distribution of the Lord’s Supper for its regular and normal use within the gathering of the body of believers (realizing that some changes in procedure may be made) or distributed privately by the pastor to individuals in need, as is the customary practice. We urge congregations to refrain from initiating novel approaches for celebration of the sacrament.’

That quotation is part of a reply to a recent question concerning the same subject matter. This link will provide you with the reply in its entirety.

The good news is that, with some restrictions involved, churches in parts of our country are opening for public worship.
