The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens has lost its legal battle to reopen churches in areas designated as red zones after a recent increase on positive tests for the COVID-19 virus.

The diocese, in a case before U.S. District Court Judge Nichols Garaufis, also sought to increase the maximum capacities on churches in red zones, which now is at 10 for buildings that in some cases can hold 500 to 1,000 or more.
