COVID Outbreak at North Carolina Church Linked to 12 Deaths and More Than 200 Cases

A COVID-19 outbreak that began at a North Carolina church has now been linked to 12 deaths and more than 200 cases.

United House of Prayer for All People, in Charlotte, held large gatherings over a week in early October without enforcing proper coronavirus safety precautions, like mask wearing and social distancing. In the month and a half since, cases linked back to the church have steadily increased, hitting 213 as of Nov. 19, and deaths are now up to 12.

The cases span four different counties with significant community spread, and health officials said that the majority of cases are in people who did not visit the church. An outbreak at a nearby nursing home, Madison Saints Paradise South Senior Living, has been traced back to the church. Two nursing home residents have died due to the outbreak and 19 others have tested positive for COVID-19.


Harris initially shut down all in-person gatherings at United House of Prayer in response to the outbreak, but later adjusted their restrictions after the church agreed to regular health inspections and to limit the amount of people allowed inside. Church leaders thanked the county for reconsidering, and said that they were “excited and thankful to be able worship the Lord and do so together,” according to the Charlotte Observer.

well...I guess being able to "do so together" will mean in the after-life
