Positive Covid-19 Case

In the interest of transparency we wanted to share with you that a parishioner who attended Stations of the Cross on Friday, February 19th has tested positive for Covid-19. As is our protocol, the church was thoroughly sanitized after that evening (as it is after every Mass). Due to our diligent adherence to mask wearing and social distancing protocols we believe that this to be a low-risk situation, but wanted to be completely transparent and share what we know. 

All those who were in attendance at Stations have been emailed or called directly from the Parish. Contact tracing, as necessary, will be completed by the Schenectady County Department of Health.  The person who tested positive is in isolation and following all medical advice.  

If we receive any additional relevant information we will post it here.  If you have any questions/concerns please contact the Parish Office.

As is always the case, if you develop any symptoms, you should contact your medical provider and follow their advice.
