“The Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill join The Doctors to discuss their recent wedding, which took place in the midst of the pandemic.
The couple invited over 200 people to their nuptials and they received criticism and made headlines for having such a large in-person event while COVID-19 is still spreading. Photos from the event showed people not following proper safety guidelines, like not wearing masks.
Cynthia says, "We did everything on our part to try to have the safest COVID-19 wedding that we could."
The newlyweds say they checked guest's temperatures, provided masks, face shields, and hand sanitizer to those in attendance. They also tell Dr. Ian Smith that guests were instructed to only take off their masks to eat and drink. Cynthia and Mike say guests put their masks back on after taking photos and they had employees telling guests to mask back up if they took them off. Attendees were also encouraged to get tested for the virus prior to the event.
As for any ramifications for having a wedding during a pandemic, Cynthia tells The Doctors, "We have not had one positive case of coronavirus that has been tracked back to our wedding."
