From Bishop Rhyne:
I wanted to share with you where I stand with my health situation. First, I want to let you know that my COVID test came back negative. I thank God for this.
However, I still have many of the symptoms and health issues that began last week and are associated with Covid-19 - shortness of breath, congestion, and cough. I have been seeing my doctor and continue to stay in contact with her. I am thankful the other tests I had have come back clear and no markers for other serious problems appeared.
I am feeling much better than I did last week. I still get exhausted fairly quickly, but that is slowly getting better. I thank God for that; I would not wish this on anyone.
I can also tell you that I have not been in contact with anyone who was symptomatic, or who I found out later had COVID-19. To me, this highlights even more the importance of our doing all we can to be safe. Please wear a mask when you are in public and church, remembering that my mask protects you and your mask protects me. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer. Do all you can to protect yourself and others
Thank you all for your messages and prayers. I truly appreciate you taking the time to reach out.
I will be working from home this week (6/22-6/26). I am available by email if you need to contact me.
Thank you and God bless
