EUGENE, Ore.-- Lane County Public Health announced the possibility that community members who attended a local prayer service three weeks ago may have been exposed to coronavirus.

According to officials, a person who has tested positive for the virus attended First Christian Church's interfaith prayer service on March 11. The individual was tested on March 17 because preexisting medical conditions had made assessing coronavirus symptoms challenging.

Officials are asking those present at the service to call Lane County Public Health if they have developed symptoms. Because two weeks have passed since the possible exposure, non-symptomatic people who attended the service are not being asked to self-quarantine.

Symptoms of the virus include a high fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
