Was it the Easter Sunday service? Or the family gathering the day before?
Probably the latter because I and six others who were there have felt unwell and at least three of us - including this humble correspondent - have tested positive.
I am now confined to the apartment for the next five days. Feeling some chills and tiredness, some coughs, but no fever.

My hopes and prayers for a speedy recovery are with you.

Thank you.
The weird thing is that I don't feel very sick. But of course the quarantine is not for me, it is to make sure that others - some of whom might be more vulnerable - are not put in danger.
So we wait to see if the virus gets a grip on me or if - after five days - I am not a threat to anyone.

Prayers ascend for a speedy recovery Pastor Austin.  I had it in early February and it was a very mild case all things considered.  I hope yours is as well.
