COVID-19: Millinocket Wedding Outbreak Update - 7 Dead

Maine CDC reported this week that seven people have died with COVID-19 related to the August 7 Millinocket weddingPortland Press Herald reporter @PPHEricRussell provided the following timeline of events following the wedding on Twitter. It’s an excellent example and reminder for all to #besafe, #maskup, #distance, and #washhands 

  • On August 7, a wedding was held in Millinocket. Approximately 65 people attended. It was indoors. There wasn't much mask compliance.
  • It has now become a COVID-19 super-spreading event, the biggest so far in Maine.
  • One adult wedding guest saw a parent after the event.
  • That parent then saw another child, an adult who works at the Maplecrest Rehabilitation Center in Madison.
  • Maine CDC believes that's how the Millinocket wedding outbreak spread to the nursing home.
  • As of Tuesday, September 15, six residents of Maplecrest Rehabilitation Center in Madison have died and that number could go up.
  • In all, there have been 39 cases between residents and staff at the nursing home.
  • The August 7 wedding also has been linked to an outbreak of more than 70 cases at the York County Jail. A staff member at the jail was confirmed to have attended the wedding.
  • York County is now the biggest COVID-19 hot-spot in Maine and has public health officials worried.
  • Another outbreak in York County is at the Calvary Baptist Church, whose pastor officiated the Millinocket wedding and has openly defied the state's guidelines on masks and physical distancing."
