Public health officials say 23 COVID-19 cases have resulted from four events related to a wedding in the Greater Toronto Area, as they continue to track close contacts of people who were in attendance.

The York Region Public Health Unit late Saturday warned anyone who attended the wedding events that they may have been exposed to the virus, and to monitor for symptoms until Sept. 12.

The unit initially reported 11 cases from the events, but increased the tally to 23 on Sunday evening as contact tracing efforts continued.

Three of the events took place Aug. 28 at a private home in Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ont., Rexdale Singh Sabha Religious Centre in Toronto, and Lakshmi Narayan Mandir Temple in Toronto.

The other took place on Aug. 29 at a private home in Markham, Ont.

A statement from the health unit says of the confirmed cases, “18 are residents of York Region, four are residents of Durham Region and one is a resident of Peel Region.”
