After having had minor symptoms and testing positive for the coronavirus early last week, Bishop Seitz has continued to quarantine in his home under the supervision of the El Paso County Health Department and his physician.
Via a news release, Diocesan officials said that although Bishop Seitz did have a low grade fever, he has been free of a fever since Monday, October 5th and has not exhibited any symptoms since then.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the El Paso community for all of their prayers for my recovery,” Bishop Seitz said. “I will continue to offer my prayers for all those in our community and throughout the world currently afflicted with this virus, especially for those who are hospitalized,” he added. “I continue to pray for our local, state and national governments as well as all health officials on the front lines they continue to address this pandemic,” he ended.
Bishop Seitz is planning on being tested on Tuesday morning and is hoping to be released from his quarantine on Wednesday October 14th.
