New Jersey governor condemns house party at a packed Airbnb with over 700 guests

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/27/us/new-jersey-airbnb-house-party-covid-trnd/index.html

(CNN)A house party in New Jersey was so packed with partygoers openly flouting the state's Covid-19 crowd guidelines this weekend that it took police officers over 5 hours to break it up.

The bust occurred on Sunday at around 8:30 p.m., when police officers arrived at a house in Jackson that was being rented out through Airbnb, according to a statement by Captain Steven Laskiewicz posted on the Jackson Police Department's Facebook page.

Still, the party continued to grow, with the crowd surging to an estimated 700 people with well over 100 vehicles parked in the area, according to the statement.

It took police until 1 a.m. to fully clearly the residence. The homeowner and two party organizers were each issued summons, the statement said.

"Come on folks! Come on," said Gov. Phil Murphy, reacting to this news during his coronavirus news conference on Monday. "That's needlessly putting men and women in uniform and their families at risk."

2. There goes New Jersey which was doing well. What is wrong with people??

And here in New York we're supposedly doing well, too - but then we've been inundated with tourists just north of here, many from states that were under quarantine. Businesses have been cited and shut down for violations, but the crowds are already there and much of the damage is done. We've seen new cases reported in the newspaper, all resulting from "gatherings." And the "summer tourist season" is only half over...
