The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating an outbreak of COVID-19 among individuals affiliated with the Calvary Baptist Church in Sanford. According to the Maine CDC, there are at least five confirmed cases of COVID-19 involving people affiliated within the congregation. An epidemiological investigation is underway, which includes looking into how these cases in Sanford could link to other outbreaks in York and Penobscot counties.
