CKTB NEWS | Backyard party

A backyard party in London, has infected 8 people with COVID-19 and possibly more outside the city limits, including Waterloo and Hamilton.  

London's top medical officer of health said six women and two men, all in their 20s, attended an outdoor BBQ at a private home this month, that had approximately 25 people present. 

 All of the people exposed were socializing before their tests were known.   

Health officials and the mayor both scolded those attending the BBQ calling the behaviour unacceptable. 

Party was held shortly after London entered phase 2 and did violate the gathering limit of no more than 10 people.
