(ChurchLeaders) The lead pastor of Westmore Church of God in Cleveland, Tennessee, has taken to Facebook to explain the events surrounding the recent outbreak of COVID-19 at his church. Kelvin Page expressed his grief and sense of personal responsibility over the fact the outbreak occurred and said that he and Westmore want to learn from their mistakes, one of which was not stressing the importance of wearing masks.
“The thing that most did not give attention to, and I’ll have to say this, was masks,” said Page. “Masks must be considered by everyone, but especially those that are vulnerable. But perhaps when we all wear masks, the vulnerable are less likely to be vulnerable.”
