The partygoers are now all in isolation, the CISSS spokesperson said.

"In large gatherings and parties, we are one person away from being contaminated or contaminating someone," the CISSS de Laval wrote in a Thursday Facebook post.

"What can we do to bring this pandemic to an end, to help and harm as little as possible? Take it seriously, be responsible, wear a mask, wash your hands, etc..."

Though public gatherings may now include up to 250 people in Quebec, private gatherings are still limited to 10 people.
