A Eucharistic minister who distributed the Holy Communion at a Catholic church in Woodside has tested positive for Coronavirus.

The minister last handed out the Eucharist to congregants of Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church, located at 31-30 61st St., on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 26. He last attended mass on Saturday, Feb. 29, the Diocese of Brooklyn said.

Anyone who attended mass on those days should contact their doctor if they exhibit any Coronavirus symptoms, like fever or cough.

As a result of the positive case, the church is undergoing a deep cleaning and sanitization, following the guidelines issued by the CDC.

The Diocese of Brooklyn canceled all mass ceremonies on Monday, until further notice. However, churches remain open for private prayer.

Six cases of coronavirus are also tied to a Catholic church in East Elmhurst, the diocese said.
