DETROIT (AP) - Officials say an indoor wedding reception in southeastern Michigan that had more than 100 people in attendance has been linked to five confirmed COVID-19 cases.


Wayne County health officials are investigating the July 18 event at Crystal Gardens Banquet Hall in Southgate.

Those confirmed to have the coronavirus have been instructed to self-isolate. Wayne County’s communicable disease team is reaching out to others who attended the reception for more potential cases.

The county says the reception was in violation of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order limiting the number of people attending indoor events.
