Holy Family Parish suspends Mass
The pastor of Holy Family Parish in Portage has suspended Masses and closed the church office until further notice, according to a release from Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown Director of Communications Tony DeGol.
The action is in response to staffers and a volunteer exhibiting symptoms of an illness. The diocese previously announced on Oct. 23 that another volunteer at the parish tested positive for COVID-19.
The individuals are seeking testing for the coronavirus, according to the release.
The individuals experiencing symptoms were not present at any Masses held Saturday or Sunday.
