Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This past Saturday evening I was not feeling well and on Sunday recognized I had symptoms of the COVID-19 virus. I have tested positive. I am doing fine. For the next two weeks, I am self-isolating to let the virus run its course. I will be sure to keep you updated. Since we were following the strict and recommended precautions, there is minimal exposure risk.
It is important for everyone to continually monitor their health. Symptoms of COVID-19 include coughing, fever, and shortness of breath. Call your healthcare provider if you develop symptoms. It is important to follow all guidelines provided at this time, including staying at home, continue preventive measures, and practice social distancing.

Please take care of yourself.
