A Trussville church has temporarily closed its facilities including a daycare center because the pastor and his family tested positive for coronavirus.

The Rev. Stephen Strange, pastor of Trussville First United Methodist Church, announced in a Facebook video on Wednesday that he, his wife, Laura, and three other family members tested positive for COVID-19.

The church sent out an announcement on Monday, July 6, that the church and its daycare facilities would be closed down for two weeks.

Strange said he, his wife and children underwent testing on Sunday, July 5, but did not get the test results back until Wednesday.

“All five of us who were tested were positive,” he said.

The church’s Kids First Day Care had reopened in May and began full-time hours May 25.

“My kids work in day school,” Strange said. “We had to shut everything down because we had been all over the place.”
