More than 180 adults were arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Super-Spreader Taskforce at a weekend party in Los Angeles, the department announced Monday.
The arrests were made Saturday night at two commercial buildings. Each of the 182 people arrested was cited and released, the department said.
A post on the department's Twitter page said "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 goal of these enforcement actions is to reduce the spread of COVID19 and the risk to our vulnerable populations.''
