Communication for St. Andrew Kim Parish, Toronto
November 16, 2020
Dear St. Andrew Kim Parishioners:
I would like to thank all parishioners for their assistance in helping us to implement health protocols during our Return to Church over the past several months. It has been so wonderful to be able to celebrate the sacraments together once again.
Over the past 24 hours, we learned that a member of our parish community has tested positive for Covid-19. The individual last attended Mass on November 8th at 3 p.m. The parishioner was wearing a mask and appropriately distanced throughout their time at church. Both the Archdiocese of Toronto and Toronto Public Health are aware of the positive test.
It has been determined that this case presents a very low risk of transmission. However, we ask that all parishioners continue to self-monitor for symptoms. As we have said in the past and especially during this period of increased cases in the City of Toronto, if you are not feeling well or experiencing Covid symptoms, please do not come to church, connect with your family doctor or consider getting tested for Covid-19.
A self-assessment tool can be found by visiting: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/. You can also contact the Toronto Public Health Hotline at (416) 338-7600 between 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. if you have questions about Covid-19. Translation is available in multiple languages.
We will share any relevant updates as necessary. Thank you for your continued co-operation as we pray for all those who are sick and those who are caring for them.
