CDC Study: Motorcycle rally sparked COVID-19 cases in Minnesota


The Associated Press - November 20, 2020

NEW YORK (AP) — This summer’s huge motorcycle rally in South Dakota led to dozens of coronavirus cases in neighboring Minnesota. That’s the finding of a report Friday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The study was mainly conducted by Minnesota health officials.

They counted 86 cases that they said were related to the rally in Sturgis — 51 people who went to the event and 35 who came into contact with those people later.

Most did not suffer serious illnesses, but four were hospitalized and one died.

The rally has been a source of contention between the governors of the two states.
