By West Kentucky Star Staff
CALLOWAY COUNTY - A church in Murray is asking their attendees to self quarantine after a visitor at last Sunday's service tested positive for COVID-19.

In a now deleted post on Facebook Thursday, University Church of Christ says they received a call from the Calloway County Health Department, informing them that a visitor who had attended their service on Sunday had been diagnosed with the new coronavirus.

University Church of Christ Senior Minister Charley Bazzell told WKMS that leadership had received the call Thursday, informing them that it was an out-of-town visitor that had tested positive for the virus, although no other details were provided.

According to the post, the Calloway County Health Department has instructed them to contact anyone who may have attended last Sunday's service, and to strongly urge them to self-quarantine for ten days.

The church provided the following symptoms to look out for:

• Fever (most likely over 100 degrees)
• Flu-like symptoms
• Cough
• Shortness of Breath

Church officials ask anyone that is experiencing any of those symptoms to contact the Calloway County Health Department at 270-753-3381, or the national COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-722-5725. They also mention that tests are available, but limited.
