Beloved of Emmanuel:
We are writing to inform you that this afternoon we were notified that a child at the church picnic on Sunday tested positive for COVID-19. This was a positive result from a rapid test conducted today (9/28) in a doctor’s office. PCR lab test results are still pending.
We understand that all exposures are not equal and have followed up with families that were eating at the same table with the child. If you have not been contacted, you and your family were not eating with the child.
It is for reasons such as these that we wear masks and perform contact tracing. So that we can care for one another as a community of faith. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this together.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Edgardo Rivera
