A Baptist church retreat in Ohio attended by 800 people from June 27 to July 3 has resulted in 30 COVID-19 cases so far, Dayton & Montgomery County public health officials said Monday.

Why it matters: This is the second COVID-19 outbreak triggered by a multi-day church event in the past week.

  • Last week it was revealed that a Texas church summer camp had resulted in at least 125 coronavirus infections and left "hundreds more" exposed to the virus.

The big picture: The church retreat at Camp Chautauqua, Ohio, was attended by more than 800 people and churches from "Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana," per the county health department statement.

  • At least 30 COVID-19 cases have been identified among attendees in Ohio and Kentucky.

Of note: The camp and event organizers didn't respond to public health officials for several days after the initial cases were identified and haven't provided contact information for the other attendees, the statement added.

Driving the news: Last week, the Food and Drug Administration approved Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus booster shots for people over 65 or at risk of developing severe COVID-19.
