Ohio couple open up about wedding-turned-COVID-19 superspreader event

The Ohio newlyweds whose wedding turned into a coronavirus superspreader event opened up about the ordeal, describing the emotional “toll” of learning about the rise in cases.

Of the 83 attendees at the Halloween wedding of Anthony and Mikayla Bishop in the city of Blue Ash, a total of 32 have since tested positive for coronavirus, including the couple and three of their grandparents, WLWT reported.

“Every single day we’re getting a call. ‘Oh here’s another person. Here’s another person. Here’s another person.’ And it starts to take a toll on you,” Mikayla Bishop said.

Mikayla said most of their wedding guests went maskless for their big day, despite the couple providing face coverings for all attendees.

“I didn’t think that almost half of our wedding guests were gonna get sick,” the bride told the outlet.

“You’re in the moment. You’re having fun. You don’t think about COVID anymore,” she said.

The pair got sick en route to their honeymoon in North Carolina. The groom had mild symptoms, but Mikayla suffered a more severe bout of the bug.

Two of the three grandparents who contracted coronavirus were hospitalized.
