Couple who attended Sienna Plantation church tests positive for COVID-19

A Missouri City church is investigating after a married couple that attended service in March tested positive for coronavirus. 

On Thursday, church officials were informed that a married couple who had attended St. Angela Merici Parish tested positive for COVID-19, according to an announcement on the church's Facebook page.

The couple attended the 8 a.m. Mass on Sunday, March 8, and were seated in the seventh row from the front of the church on the left side.

The man collapsed during the Mass and was helped out of the Church. A number of parishioners came to his assistance. EMS was called and treated him for dehydration. He was asymptomatic at the time.

All but one of the individuals who came to the parishioner’s aid of the COVID-19 diagnosis has been notified.
