FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ST. CHARLES BORROMEO RESPONSE TO EBOLA REPORTS
Due to recent reports and in order to exercise the highest level of caution, St. Charles Parish, School, and Religious Education department has consulted the Mahoning County Health Commissioner, Mrs. Patricia Sweeney, as well as the Diocese of Youngstown, for help assessing the risks to our students, staff, and parishioners. There is plenty of information and misinformation about the Ebola virus currently in the media. We will continue to rely on advice from direct, authoritative sources, who are most knowledgeable about the virus.
We respect the decisions of individuals and families to raise questions and concerns. Please know that the health and safety of our parish community remains our highest priority and we will continue to follow the advice and guidelines from the Health Commissioner.
Pastor, Rev. Philip Rogers says, “The parish, school, and religious education office will continue to operate as always. In the meantime, we appreciate your support, your prayers, and most importantly your trust.”
