At least nine cases of COVID-19 could be connected to a Charlotte church’s convocation events from last weekend, Mecklenburg County officials tweeted late Saturday.
County public health officials urged all people who attended the events at United House of Prayer for All People at 2321 Beatties Ford Road to get tested for the coronavirus.
The county said that free COVID-19 testing will be available Sunday at StarMed Health, 4001 Tuckaseegee Road. People can find a testing site near them in Mecklenburg at: https://meck.co/3ka8gLE.
Church officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
