Sweet 16 ‘Superspreader’ Party Infects Dozens With COVID And Forces 270 Back Into Quarantine

Published

Amy is the Director of Trending Content at LittleThings. After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos.

Twenty-eight teenagers and nine adults from Long Island were recently diagnosed with COVID-19. Another 270 people have been forced back into quarantine.

And all of these cases have been traced back to one event.

On September 25, 2020, 81 guests attended an indoors Sweet 16 party held at an event venue called the Miller Place Inn on Long Island.

The party was illegal as it violated several health codes that had been put in place during the pandemic.

For example, gatherings were limited to 50 people or 50% of room capacity — whichever number is smaller — yet more than 80 people attended the Sweet 16.

In addition, it’s been reported that these party guests did not wear protective face masks, nor did they maintain social distancing while eating and dancing inside the venue.


Steven Bellone, the county executive of Suffolk County, has called the Sweet 16 a “super-spreader” event unlike anything he has seen since the start of the pandemic.

The venue has been fined $10,000 by the state and $2,000 by the county.

So how was this party even possible?!

The manager of the venue reportedly told NBC New York that he “didn’t realize” the party in question was in violation of any health codes.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
