Report: Parishioner Defies Coronavirus Self-Quarantine, Golfs in Reston

A man who visited Christ Church in Georgetown where a rector tested positive for coronavirus defied a two-week self-quarantine recommended by D.C. Mayor Bowser.

According to a FOX 5 DC report, the man, who is from Silver Spring, spent Monday “playing golf in Reston…. albeit at a distance from his friends.”

Roughly 550 parishioners were in self-quarantine through Monday (March 9) after the rector tested positive for the virus. A 39-year-old man who is also from the church also tested positive.

At a county meeting earlier today, the county’s health director urged residents to exercise caution when going outdoors.

Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Braband also outlined two different scenarios for school closures in the event of the spread of the virus into local schools.

Closures could be targeted to specific schools or closed entirely if recommended by the state health commissioner due to high rates of absenteeism.
