  • L.A. Mayor Says He Will Cut Power to Illegal House Parties

The large parties that have recently taken place in the Hollywood Hills and Calabasas are "flagrant violations of health orders", according to Garcetti.

Starting Friday night, he said, houses, businesses and other venues hosting "un-permitted large gatherings" will face tougher consequences. Garcetti is also calling on county health inspectors and other city officials to be on the lookout for these types of gatherings.

When asked by a local news outlet about the legality of these orders, Garcetti claimed that he discussed it with lawyers and that it is "rooted in strong law".

He said that city legal experts had vetted the measure and found it to be on firm legal ground.

"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 said. "Whether it takes shutting off utilities or revoking their permits, we must do what it takes to shut these party houses down".

Lieutenant Chris Ramirez, of the Los Angeles Police Department, said: "When officers arrived they noticed large amounts of people on the roadway and vehicles kind of blocking, double parked and stuff, stacked on the roadway".

The LA County Department of Public Health said in an emailed statement that large in-person gatherings where people are spaced less than 6 feet apart and do not wear face coverings pose the highest risk to public health.

The emergence of Garcia, particularly since the season resumed after the Covid-19 stoppage, had been a bonus for Guardiola in a problem position.

She then went on to say that gatherings such as the one in Beverly Crest on Monday night are against the health officer's order, and not allowed. "The main thing is how do you enforce the fact that it was a private party?"

The county order is to "protect the health and lives of county residents", the health department said. "Because they create a lot of risk for transmission at activities that really are not essential".

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a plan to deter these violators on Wednesday, saying he has authorized the Department of Water and Power to shut off utilities to homes that host large gatherings, which are already prohibited under coronavirus restrictions. Violation of the order could mean a fine, jail or both.

"These parties and gatherings hurt all of us", said added.

As of Wednesday, almost 196,000 people in LA County have tested positive for the virus and 4,760 people have died from complications related to COVID-19.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has also has decried the violating of social distancing by young people who are holding parties, blaming them for the recent spike in new coronavirus cases.
