This is a major issue, and not just for worship services. Parents are contemplating changing schools based on who is allowing singing and who isn't. A lot of this impacts children's development as well. We have to find a balance and work with teachers to find solutions that are safe. Good spacing and face covers are critical...and I think do make it possible.
