A coronavirus outbreak at a Franciscan convent in Germany has resulted in 76 nuns testing positive for COVID-19, although none of them have thus far required hospitalization.
The Sisters of Saint Francis of the Martyr St. George in Thuine, an order known for overseeing nursing homes and schools, alerted officials last week when an outbreak took place.
While 76 nuns tested positive, 85 others received negative results and 160 lay employees at the facility are awaiting the results for their tests.
“We are grateful that so far nobody is in the hospital,” said Sister Maria Cordis Reiker, mother superior of the convent, The Associated Press reported. “We don’t know how things will continue regarding our schools, it’s all still in flux.”
