140 people must isolate after 2 cases of Omicron at 90s boat party

Two guests at a Sydney Harbour boat party tested positive for Omicron meaning their fellow party-goers must be tested and isolate.

Late last night, NSW Health said five people had tested positive for COVID and had recently attended ‘Flow Fridays’ – a 90s themed boat party on December 3.

“Genome sequencing to confirm if any of the five confirmed cases have the Omicron variant is underway – preliminary results indicate two are likely to have it,” the department said, in a statement.

NSW Health are trying to get in contact with at least 140 people who signed in with a QR code to the party to instruct them and members of their households to get tested and isolate immediately.

Hopefully, the 90s fanatics had a solid night out as many of them won’t be able to leave the house again for at least a week.

The event was hosted by Cadman Cruises who was reportedly doing all the right things to keep everyone safe.

On the Facebook event, the organisers reminded guests to keep their masks on and bring proof of vaccination.

“Flow Presents and Cadman Cruises are COVID-safe businesses and abide by all current health orders and guidelines,” they said.

“We kindly ask that all patrons assist us with compliance and social distancing.”

Alas, the party mood can be a little overwhelming at times and people have a tendency to get swept up in the moment. Especially if the moment is in the 1990s.

Once all close contacts have been instructed to stay home, you may notice a neighbour painting on the blue eyeshadow and cranking Alanis Morissette, now you know why.
