As you have likely heard, an individual involved with 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. masses last Sunday has been diagnosed as positive for Covid-19. Anyone with close or sustained contacted with the infected person has already been informed. We have been vigilant with contact tracing and reached out to all attendees of those Masses, even though risk to the general population of mass-goers is virtually non-existent.
Again, we would like to stress that the risk to attendees of any Mass is minimal due to how stringently all safety protocols, including social distancing, mask usage, and disinfection, are always followed.
Father Marty and Father Jacob did, however, have more extensive and prolonged contact with this individual, and as a result were tested for Covid-19 and are in quarantine.
Fr. Marty is happy to share that his COVID-19 test has come back negative. Out of an abundance of caution, however, his Doctor has advised him to remain in quarantine until next weekend. We are still awaiting results from Fr. Jacob’s COVID-19 test.
Fr. Marty once again assures is of his prayers for the parish community, especially the sick. Please continue your prayers for Fr. Jacob and Fr. Marty.
