St. Peter Chanel parish in Roswell and Transfiguration parish in Marietta both received notice Friday that someone with an active case of measles attended Mass at their location within the past two weeks. We are including the letter Transfiguration received from their health department.
We wanted you to be aware of the cases and that the parishes are partnering with their health departments to respond to them. Given this development and the onset of flu season, it might be a good time to remind parishioners and staff that they should stay home if they are ill and ensure your ministers are following protocol to prevent the spread of any illness.
The Georgia Department of Public Health distributes the attached Q&A about measles which may be helpful. Let us keep those infected and the health workers who are trying to prevent the continued spread of this infection in our prayers.
