crisis, vowing to have the water and power turned off.“While we have already closed all bars and nightclubs, these large house parties have essentially become nightclubs in the hills,” said the mayor during a Wednesday afternoon news conference.Garcetti said the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power will cut off service within 48 hours if the LAPD verifies that there have been violations at a home.
“We will not act lightly, but we will act,” he added.Los Angeles County director of public health Barbara Ferrer had said earlier Wednesday afternoon at a separate new conference that the parties were illegal.“These parties and gatherings hurt all of us,” said added. “We ask that everyone make good decisions. Don’t host large parties and don’t attend one if you’re invited.”
The actions came after a Monday night party that drew hundreds of people to a mansion in the Hollywood Hills on Mulholland Drive, despite months of pleading from health officials to avoid social gatherings amid the COVID-19 spread. A 35-year-old woman died in a shooting early Tuesday at the party, and four other people were injured. No arrests have been made as of Wednesday afternoon.
In response, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a legally binding health officer order that prohibits “gatherings, including parties, during this pandemic in order to protect the health and lives of county residents.” Read more: Variety »

Doubt it People will likely still find ways to throw a party even without water and power. But.. sir. Sir! We're not drinking water, and we all have mobile devices. What happen to just giving a fine?! They ain’t drinking water, bro Communism Beautiful What about the soda’s and pie! It’s here... How about we address the homeless problem first!
Wield this pandemic like kid who found his dad's gun. So preoccupied with whether they could they didn't think if they should. Stood on the shoulders of a disaster and before they even knew what they had they threw out arbitrary rules and now they abuse it, they want to abuse it It's not a party til the mayor shuts the power off.
Narc lmao Many of the mansions have backup generators and/or solar with batteries, so, yeah, that should work... Even the amazon delivery man doesn’t wear a mask in our neighborhood. Lots of people walk around harborcity LosAngeles without masks. I mean why? Just left them all infect each other and get sick, they clearly don’t care. By time you find out about the party and cut the power the virus will have spread. Just lock them all in at the house they’re partying at and force them to stay there under quarantine
Will he refund the owners their money? He's completely OK with this though... Cutting the water would be better 👃
