After returning from Texas’s July camp, more than 100 students and adults tested positive to COVID-19
Clear Creek Community Church in League City, Texas issued a statement on Saturday via facebook confirming that more than 125 people had received positive results. Many more people were exposed to the virus at the camp.
“This is a reminder of COVID-19 being present, and we need to take precautions,” Dr. Philip Keiser from Galveston County Local Health Authority said. If you are old enough to be vaccinated, and still have not been, it is time. These vaccines are safe, and provide the best protection against COVID-19 for you, your family, and your community.
The health district advised anyone who attended the camp and felt sick or was in close contact to someone who was COVID-19 positive, to have their test done and to quarantine themselves at home while they wait for results.
Clear Creek Community Church cancelled its weekly services from July 11th to deal with the outbreak.
“From the very beginning of the pandemic we have tried to love our neighbours by following strict safety protocols. This is a shocking and tragic turn of events. We feel for the people who have been infected by this virus. We ask for prayers for the complete and speedy recovery of all those infected,” the church statement said.
