BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — Bartlesville's Agape Mission announced on Facebook it will be closed this week out of precaution after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The post said the person infected with the virus "is not around the public or food area usually when working" but the food kitchen will close "to limit any exposure and clean."

A staff member with the nonprofit confirms it will be deep cleaning and will reopen with to-go boxes.

The nonprofit will resume its services on Monday, June 29 with to-go meals. Since the pandemic hit in March, the dining area closed for safety, but continued distributing hot meals to-go six days a week and reopened in early June.

Agape Mission helps feed an average of 4,200 people a month.

According to the Oklahoma State Department of Health's website, as of today there are currently 311 positive coronavirus cases in Bartlesville and 36 people have died from the virus.
