To the Editor: We identified a geographic and temporal cluster of four patients with drug poisoning occurring within one week in February 2020 from two addresses less than 1 km apart. All patients presented with typical features of opiate poisoning but had no history of opiate use. There was one death, with the three other cases having significant morbidity, which required escalating bolus doses of naloxone.
