Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, many people are staying home. Most states have put stay-at-home orders in place. This means that people are only getting groceries and running essential errands. Because of this, many church services are being live-streamed instead. So, people cannot attend church physically. But, amid the virus, part of the Duggar family is still heading to church.
Joe Duggar married Kendra Caldwell. Together, they have two young children. Kendra’s father is a pastor, and it looks Joe and Kendra went to his church service on Sunday. It seems like much of the Duggar family attends the same church, but it doesn’t look like the entire family went to church this week.
In a post from Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray on Facebook, it is clear that several family members went to the church service. Jason Duggar was also preaching.
The Duggars, Josh's family, Joe and his family, Caldwells and others at the Church of the Virus Martyrs today. Jason…
Is the Duggar family taking the coronavirus seriously?
How seriously the family is taking the coronavirus varies. Different members of the family are doing different things.
For example, Anna Duggar has been open about staying home and watching church services online, but she may have attended church on Sunday. Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo in Los Angeles, California are under a stay-at-home order and appear to be following the rules. Jessa and Ben Seewald are hanging out at home and have invested in some extra playground equipment. Jill and Derick Dillard celebrated Israel’s birthday with family at a distance.
The Duggar family did gather for their weekly family night when the pandemic was just beginning. It’s unclear if they have continued meeting, but they definitely haven’t shared about it. After all, they took a lot of heat for that one.
So, it seems that some of the family is serious, while others are ignoring the pandemic. Or, they simply don’t see it as a risk.
Stay-at-home orders in Arkansas
Right now, Arkansas does not have a stay-at-home order. As many fans know, this is where the majority of the Duggar family lives. The Arkansas governor, Asa Hutchinson, is defending his decision. He claims that it’s “successful.” Because there is no official order from Hutchinson, some fans think it’s okay that the family goes about their normal lives.
Other Duggar fans are pointing out the dangers. After all, most states in the country are following stay-at-home orders. And, many countries around the world have some type of order in place. So, fans think that the family should use common sense and stay home. They think that it’s unsafe for the Duggar family to go to church, even if there’s not an official stay-at-home order in place.
