COVID-19 outbreak reported among Galveston Co. church members after camp

If I were a religious person I guess I would just say that this was all a part of god’s plan. That’s how this works, right?

More than 125 adults and youth from a Galveston County church camp event have tested positive for COVID-19, the church said in a statement to its members.

“Unfortunately, upon return from camp, 125+ campers and adults reported to us that they tested positive for COVID-19,” church officials said in a statement. “Additionally, hundreds more were exposed to COVID-19 at camp. And hundreds of others were likely exposed when infected people returned home from camp. We seek to remain in contact with those impacted. If you, or someone in your family, begins to have symptoms, please seek medical attention immediately.”

Galveston County Health District officials said Friday they were investigating the outbreak at the five-day event that was attended by around 450 adults and children in sixth through 12th grades. The first case was reported to them on June 27.
