    Nope. 650 reported cases out of 3,000,000 reported cases is not a “major source”.

    Can you provide a source for your 650 number? I need to reference it elsewhere.

    Our Baptist Church camp has shut down for the summer as a camper tested positive and two counselors tested positive. A teen from our church tested positive after coming back from the camp.

    However, I still think churches should meet and we should sing with masks on.

    The impact of the virus and our efforts at mitigation certainly have brought tribulation to our ministry. We hold our services weekly but on line, with no child care, or other gatherings above 10 people. We are praying for better therapeutics and the arrival of a safe vaccine. But I fear many of the "just hanging on" assemblies might not recover, seemingly bringing the expected end of the age closer. On the other hand, what if this "chastening" spurs revival?

    Unless you’re including infected campers, and you hold the camp in a nursing home.
