Just a brief announcement: we learned on Saturday afternoon that one of our parishioners who attended the 7:30 AM Mass on Sunday, November 8 has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The Cambridge Board of Health and the Archdiocese of Boston have been informed.
The person, who was asymptomatic at the time, had observed all protocols before entering the church, kept a mask in place throughout the Mass (removing it only to receive communion), and left the church immediately following the Mass. The church is regularly cleaned.
By all standards, contact with the person would have been minimal. However, if you were at this Mass, you would want to monitor your health. It’s a good reminder for all of us to follow all health safety requirements.
We continue to pray for all those who are ill and those who care for them. Thank you.
