DOVER, Del. (AP) — Public health officials are encouraging people who attended two recent church conferences in Delaware to be tested for COVID-19.
Officials issued the advisory Monday after learning that at least three members of Destiny Christian Church in Dover had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Officials noted that the church hosted a three-day “Prophetic Conference” on the weekend of July 18, and another three-day “Life Conference” this past weekend.
Officials said each event drew a few hundred people.
State officials are working with church leaders to offer testing to congregation members and conference attendees on Tuesday at the church.
