McKENZIE (March 23) — Overflow Church, located in the former Rural King building on U.S. 79 reports one of its members tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
The social media post indicates the person had a mild case and is rapidly recovering. The person sought medical treatment as soon as symptoms manifested and self-quarantined before an official diagnosis was given.
Everyone who had contact with the individual is under mandatory quarantine for the remainder of the week.
The church said leaders in the church have prepared for weeks for such an event. The church is not meeting physically and is gathering virtually online.
The church is saying the patient is a victim and had no control over contracting the disease.
The church indicated it will continue to monitor the situation and asks for people to pray and support all families affected by this virus.
