Officials: 300 attend Washington wedding that leads to virus outbreak

Health officials are asking more than 300 attendees of a wedding near Ritzville on Nov. 7 to get tested for COVID-19 after several people tested positive.

The Grant County Health District said in a news release Monday that anyone who attended the wedding is being asked to quarantine through Nov. 21.

County officials said as of Monday, 17 county residents have tested positive and that attendees diagnosed with COVID-19 have also been linked to two subsequent outbreaks. Officials said they were alerting the public because they won’t be able to otherwise find every person who attended the event.

At the time of the wedding ceremonies had been limited to 30 people. As of Tuesday, Gov. Jay Inslee has prohibited receptions and is putting in place other restrictions in an effort to stem a recent spike in cases of the coronavirus that threatens to overwhelm the health care system.
