The Jackson County Health Department is tracking possible COVID-19 cases from another Independence church near where 30 confirmed cases originated last month.

The department asks people who attended services at Courageous Life Church, 17310 E. U.S. 40, on July 26 to quarantine until Sunday and get tested as soon as possible. Health officials have confirmed one COVID-19 case from the building and estimate about 200 people could have been exposed on that date.

The possible exposure notice comes as health officials continue to monitor a case from Old Paths Baptist Church, where 30 confirmed cases originated the week of July 19-24 and possible exposures reached about 300 people. The quarantine drop-off date from that location is Friday.
