The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is investigating a COVID-19 outbreak from a wedding in Milwaukee County on November 27.

DHS says there are currently 12 confirmed cases among California residents who attended the event, and one of the individuals had recently returned from international travel. A California State lab used genomic sequencing to identify that 5 of the 12 people diagnosed with COVID-19, were infected with the Omicron variant.

The 12 diagnosed with COVID-19 are between the ages of 18-49. DHS says everyone was vaccinated, and most had received boosters. No one has been hospitalized, and symptoms are mild.

DHS and the City of Milwaukee Health Department are actively reaching out to all Wisconsinites who were close contacts, and isolation and quarantine protocols are being followed.

No Omicron cases have been confirmed in a Wisconsin resident, but the DHS says they are investigating.
