The Insider reports:
An Oregon church that previously sued the state’s governor over COVID restrictions has been linked to dozens of new cases of the virus in recent weeks. According to data published on May 5 by the Oregon Health Authority, 74 people associated with the People’s Church in the city of Salem contracted COVID-19 between April 6 and April 29.
During that time the church has continued to hold in-person services, according to videos and photos posted on its Facebook page. In a number of videos, worshipers can be seen without masks and not observing social distancing. The church’s website indicates in-person services and events will include Mother’s Day services scheduled for Sunday.
