COVID outbreak at Hampshire County church resolved

June 9th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Health officials reported this week that eight members of a Hampshire County church who tested positive last month for COVID-19 have recovered from the disease and are no longer quarantined. In a news release, the Hampshire County Health Department said those people’s direct contacts tested negative for the coronavirus, and members of the church service that were not direct contacts had not developed symptoms. The church, which health officials said has been compliant in following state guidance for reopening services, was not identified.  The health department said nine cases at the church were originally reported, but one of those people did not attend the service. Hampshire County has had 33 cases of COVID-19. Twenty-nine of those people have recovered and one person has died.
