Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) announced Wednesday night that by the end of the week, the city will start cutting off water and electric services to homes and businesses caught holding unauthorized large gatherings in violation of COVID-19 restrictions.
The mayor says he wants offenders shut down “permanently.”
What are the details?
“Recently we’ve seen the reports of some large parties and gatherings in flagrant violation of health ordinances,” Garcetti said during a press conference. “As our county Department of Public Health said yesterday, and I quote, ‘The highest risk settings are large, in-person gatherings where it is difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least six feet apart and where face coverings are not worn.”
