NY Wedding and Party Causes 56 COVID-19 Cases, 300 Quarantined

A wedding and birthday party in suburban New York turned into two Covid-19 “superspreader” events that infected more than 50 people and left nearly 300 in quarantine, officials said.

“This kind of blatant disregard for the well being of others is not only extremely disappointing, it will not be tolerated,” Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone said at a news conference on Wednesday.

Bellone said the wedding held on Oct. 17 at North Fork Country Club in Cutchogue, Long Island, was in violation of the state’s rule on 50 people or less in a room. The venue was issued a $17,000 fine, officials said.
