The Archdiocese of Agana announced a parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Yigo tested positive for COVID-19.

The archdiocese was notified today and has contacted the Department of Public Health and Social Services. The person informed parish staff at about noon today they had tested positive in the morning, according to a news release.

Though the individual may have contracted the virus elsewhere and not necessarily at church, the parish has initiated archdiocese protocols and is taking precautionary measures because the parishioner attended 1 p.m. Mass at Yigo Nov. 8, the release stated. It is known that the person was a good distance from most of the general congregation.

The church is able to remain open because it already underwent deep cleaning and thorough sanitation Wednesday, said Father Paul Gofigan.

Archbishop Michael Byrnes and Gofigan extend thanks to Public Health and everyone who is assisting the Church in this area. They ask for prayers for this parishioner and all who have COVID-19.
