LOWVILLE — Everyone who attended 11 a.m. mass Sunday at St. Peter’s Church on Shady Avenue is now in quarantine due to potential exposure to COVID-19.

According to a message from Fr. Jude C. Nnadibuagha posted on the church’s website, an asymptomatic person who attended the mass later tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

He said the church had taken down the names and phone numbers of all of the people attending mass, making it easier for the attendees to be contacted by Lewis County Public Health. The message did not specify the number of people who attended the mass.

Fr. Nnadibuagha said both he and Fr. James W. Seymour will be required to quarantine, resulting in a retired priest agreeing to preside over services for the next two weeks, although daily masses other than Sunday services will be suspended until then.
