This follows the report that the county is investigating a cluster of recently confirmed COVID-19 cases that has been traced to a group meeting of approximately 60 people in early March.

Case investigation indicates that more than half of attendees who were at this gathering are now confirmed or probable cases of COVID-19. 

The county says this situation clearly illustrates the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and emphasizes the importance of following social distancing guidelines in order to control the spread of the virus.
