(ChurchLeaders) More than 125 teens and adults who attended a late-June event in Galveston County put on by Clear Creek Community Church have tested positive for COVID-19. Health officials have confirmed that at least three cases involve the highly transmissible Delta variant.
This is the second coronavirus outbreak tied to a church camp this summer. Last month, at least 85 people tested positive for COVID-19 after attending The Crossing Camp in Quincy, Illinois.
