The district also warned of the “multi-jurisdictional impact” of this event, concerned that cases would start cropping up across Washington, and now other small health districts are reporting cases connected to the wedding.

The wedding took place between Moses Lake and Ritzville near the Grant County/Adams County line. Adams County Health Department says at least four cases in the county are tied to the event.

At the time, public gatherings were to not exceed 30 people. Due to Governor Inslee’s new restrictions that went into effect this week, indoor receptions and similar gatherings will be prohibited.
