COVID Infection – October 4, 2022

The Reverend Doctor Linda Ann Hart

Dear friends,

We’ve had a report of a person who attended church on Sunday who has subsequently tested positive for COVID. With the safeguards we have in place (masks and ventilation) it is unlikely that there was transmission inside. However, during our outdoor coffee hour, a few of us had closer unmasked contact with them. We’ve informed those people who were in any contact outdoors, but want to be transparent about the possible transmission.

I was one of the people nearby and have tested negative, but I will be testing again in a few days and taking care between now and another test so as to decrease the chance of any other transmission.

Our best defense against COVID infection is getting vaccinated and boosted each time a new booster is available. Wearing masks continues to enhance our protection.

We will be in touch if we have any further indication of transmission among the people who attended on Sunday.

Be safe and healthy, friends,

Rev. Linda
