Over 300 guests attended a wedding in Washington. Now 17 people have COVID-19.

At least 17 cases of the coronavirus have been linked to a wedding held in the Washington countryside earlier this month, a possible COVID-19 super-spread event that forced health officials to implore all 300 attendees to put in quarantine.

The Grant County Health District confirmed to the Daily Beast on Wednesday that at least 17 people have contracted COVID-19 as part of the November 7 wedding near Ritzville, Wash. – a rural town in eastern Washington with a population of only 1,649. Officials say the marriage has since caused an increase in COVID-19 in the region and they expect more cases in the coming days.

The Washington Department of Health is now asking all wedding participants to get tested and self-quarantined until November 21.
