The health and safety of everyone who attends Mass at Saint John the Evangelist Parish is of critical
importance to us.
Our parish was notified that an individual who was present at the 10:30 a.m. Mass at Saint John the
Evangelist Church later tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, November 16. We are sending this
notification to fully inform and protect our community.
The Diocese of Scranton strongly recommends that all people wear masks while attending Mass,
regardless of their vaccination status.
Everyone in our community is encouraged to know and keep alert for any potential symptoms of COVID19, which may include (but are not limited to) fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,
muscle pain, headache or a loss of taste and smell. If anyone develops any of those symptoms, they
should contact their healthcare provider.
Our parish community wishes to extend prayers for healing and comfort to the individual who is
experiencing illness and for all those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
