We have been notified by the Health Department that someone attending the 4pm Mass at Sacred Heart Church – Riggsville, on Saturday, November 21 tested positive for the Coronavirus.
Because of the strict precautions we follow, such as requiring the wearing of masks, the use of hand sanitizer, the required 6-foot distancing for seating and maintaining social distancing during Communion and exiting the church, sanitizing the space after each Mass, and so forth, there is very little cause for concern about the spreading of the disease from this person.
Therefore, anyone who attended the 4pm Mass at Sacred Heart on Saturday, November 21 should monitor for any symptoms of Covid-19. If symptoms occur, contact your family physician or the Cheboygan County Health Department.
There is no need to self-quarantine.
There is no need to be tested unless doing either would ease any anxiety you may be having.
Lastly, those in a high-risk category are asked to be very cautious and conservative when making decisions to be out in places where you encounter groups of people not living in your same household or who have not been a part of your daily encounters, including attending Mass.
If you have any questions, please contact the Cheboygan County Health Department. Thank you.
