The first patient in this small cluster was identified in presymptomatic period, as a close contact of a confirmed patient. The participants of the music festival held at the live house had close contact with the first patient during their incubation period, participants were confirmed to the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in the subsequent sampling test.
