The Russian Church of St. John the Theologian has been shut down for 20 days, following the hospitalization of a clergyman due to coronavirus infection. The temple has been disinfected, and its clergy put under mandatory quarantine.
The coronavirus-infected clergyman Giorgi Papava was yesterday taken to the Vakhtang Bochorishvili Clinic in Tbilisi.
Archpriest Andria Jagmaidze said the clergyman attended a service in the Russian Church of St. John the Theologian a few days ago. “The service, which was attended by a clergyman infected with coronavirus, was attended by other clergymen as well,” he noted.
