As COVID-19 instances skyrocket in California, the Los Angeles County superspreader task force is cracking down on underground events that includes booze, strippers and a whole lot of revelers.
Last Thursday night time, the task force broke up three events, leading to 137 arrests and the recovery of a discarded firearm. Pictures of the underground shindigs present stripper poles in lounges filled with alcohol and hookah.
Then on Friday, KTTV embedded with the task force as they broke up a “stripper party” at a flower store in southeast LA County.
“Inside the flower shop, there were in excess of 50 partygoers, most of whom were not wearing masks,” LASD Captain Ed Wells advised the native information outlet. “All of whom were arrested and issued a promise to appear.”
According to LA County’s “Safer at Home” order, all private and non-private gatherings with individuals from a couple of family are at present prohibited, apart from outside spiritual providers and outside political expression occasions.
“Sheriff Alex Villanueva has made it clear he will seek out & take law enforcement action against ALL underground party events occurring anywhere within Los Angeles County, who fall under the Health Orders of the County’s Department of Public Health,” the LA County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday.
LA County recorded 6,492 new cases and 262 deaths Wednesday, bringing totals to 1,038,092 instances and 14,384 deaths. 7,253 individuals are at present hospitalized.
