We encourage everyone who received the survey to complete it — regardless of whether or not they fell ill following the event,” a spokesperson from MDH, Chase Cook, said.

A representative from the Best of Baltimore issued the following statement:

“It came to our attention that some people who attended this year’s party experienced an illness in the days after. Out of great concern for those who fell ill, we proactively contacted the Department of Health and alerted all ticket buyers.

Once the investigation is complete, we will be reaching out directly to those that were affected. We sincerely hope that anyone who has become ill begins feeling better soon.”
