Even in states such as Florida and Texas where the Governors have explicitly stated that church services may go on with precautions it is the Hierarchy which remains entrenched in fear.
I suspect that the fear stems from concerns about civil liability in the wake of the sexual abuse scandals. The Orthodox Church in America based much of its statement encouraging closure not on theology, not on protecting the vulnerable of the community, not on obedience to the civil authorities, but on the fear that by staying open someone MIGHT get sick, MIGHT sue, and the insurance carrier MIGHT not cover the defense.
I like to think that it's concern for the faithful, pastoral care and service that motivates the Hierarchs, not a fear of getting sued,or that someone might get sick. Thousands have already died from this virus including priests, nuns and, perhaps, bishops. Please. Make your house a church, light a candle and pray for them.
