OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - A little more than a week ago, the pastor at Omaha's St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church tested positive for COVID-19, causing a two-week closure of the parish.

Now, the pastor and a few other leaders at the St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church say they came into contact with an individual who tested positive for the virus.

No one has tested positive, but Deacon Timothy McNeil tells us precautions are in place at the church.

The church says all involved are going into self-quarantine, causing the cancellation of all daily and weekend masses and confessions for one week.
