The group visited both the Deerhurst Resort and 3 Guys restaurant while on their trip. 

"None of them had symptoms at the time,” Gardner said. “Individuals among them developed symptoms after when they went home out of region and sought testing, with results coming back being positive for 11 of those individuals.”

A contact-tracing investigation is still underway to determine who was potentially exposed and which individuals will need to go into self-isolation.
