Father George tested positive for COVID
From Father George “My COVID-19 test results came back this morning: DETECTED - POSITIVE. I'm taking the news in stride, and optimistically, primarily because I've been taking extra zinc and vitamins, and because my symptoms appear to be improving - intermittent fever, feeling tired, stuffiness and occasional cough.
After speaking to my physician, he convinced me to enter a lottery for special therapy that may hasten the recovery process. I'll now tomorrow whether I will receive the treatment.
Meanwhile, I appreciate being overwhelmed by and feel like I'm swimming in a sea of loving support, prayers, and offers of assistance. Thank you all for your concern. I'll reach out if I need anything.”
Father George lives separately from our other clergy and has not interacted with them for almost two weeks. Thank you for your continued prayers as Father remains quarantined.
