Two Of Hamilton's Biggest Recent COVID-19 Outbreaks Are Tied To Weddings

Hamilton Public Health revealed three weddings are responsible for some of the city's largest recent COVID-19 outbreaks.

According to their most recent data, Hamilton Public Health shows that 36 of a total of 102 cases of COVID-19 stemmed from weddings that recently happened in the city, making up for over a third (35.3%) of infections.

Four of the cases were at Galileo Gardens, 20 came from a gathering at the Waterfront Centre, and 12 cases came from LIUNA Station.

YWCA Hamilton's women's only drop-in centre, Carole Anne's Place, is another location for a double-digit outbreak right now with 14 active cases.

As of today, there are 16 active outbreaks. Five other outbreaks, including the Waterfront Centre wedding outbreak, were declared over on Tuesday, September 7.

The Ontario government recently announced they will be adopting a vaccine certificate that will launch on September 22, which will become a requirement for all who plan on attending a wedding. Starting that day until October 12, all guests will have to provide a negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test at least 48 hours before the wedding as an alternative to proof vaccination.
