Over 180 People Exposed To Coronavirus After Attending Mother’s Day Church Service in Butte County

Over 180 people have been exposed to the coronavirus after attended a religious service on Mother’s Day in Butte County. The attendees have been notified about their exposure and have been given guidelines on how to properly self-quarantine, the LA Times reports.

According to local health officials, the infected individual received their positive results the day after the service and is now in isolation at home.

Since the outbreak of the virus, religious-organizations have found themselves compromised. In fact, according to local news, the church, Palermo Bible Family Church, refused to close its doors, despite the order banning gatherings of any size.

Danette York, Butte County Public Health Director, condemned the organizations. He said, “organizations that hold in-person services or gatherings are putting the health and safety of their congregations, the general public and our local ability to open up at great risk.”

However, in the wake of the positive results, PBFC suspended all in-person services and resumed its services online. During Sunday’s service, Pastor Michael Jacobsen opened up about the incident, saying, “They didn’t do it intentionally, they didn’t come to the church intentionally, and it was never my heart to put our church in ham’s way. That’s never been my desire.”  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

According to CNN, California had more than 78,800 cases of coronavirus as of late Sunday, with more than 3,200 deaths in the state. Butte County has had 22 positive cases, according to KRCR, and no deaths.
