House Party Crackdown in LA Will See Home Owners Hit with Penalties

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health on Tuesday, August 4 issued a "legally binding health officer order that prohibits gatherings, including parties, during the coronavirus pandemic in order to protect the health and the lives of county residents".

Large, in-person gatherings where people are not wearing face coverings and social distancing is hard are among the highest risk settings, Garcetti said, citing health officials.

With the closure of bars, "these large house parties have essentially become nightclubs in the hills", Garcetti said, per the Los Angeles Times.

Under the measures, which comes into force on Friday night, if police establish that parties are repeatedly being held at a property the city's Department of Water and Power will shut off services within 48 hours. Garcetti also indicated that county health inspectors and other city representatives would be on the lookout for violations.

Nancy Vanden Houten of Oxford Economics said the end of the benefits may have discouraged workers from submitting new applications.


Another KTTV reporter asked the mayor about the legality of his new order, and Garcetti replied that city attorneys assure him the order is "rooted in strong law".

"By turning off that power, shutting off that water we feel we can close these places down, which usually are not one-time offenders but multiple-offenders", he added. The penalties also include water and power shutoffs and occupancy permit revocation. The consequences of these large parties ripple far beyond just those parties. He added, "Police tell us the party on Mullholland Drive was gang related". It was indoors. How do you enforce the fact it's a private party?

"But public health orders are in place to safeguard the health of everyone in our community amid this deadly pandemic", Sierra said in a statement.

Violation of the order is considered a crime that could be punishable by fines or imprisonment, according to another statement released to news outlets on Tuesday afternoon.
