Per NJ Governor Phil Murphy:

Can’t believe I have to say this at all, let alone for the second time. But here we are.

NO CORONA PARTIES. They’re illegal, dangerous, and stupid.

We will crash your party. You will pay a big fine. And we will name & shame you until EVERYONE gets this message into their head

Last night, Ewing Township Police broke up a party with 47 people – including a DJ – crammed into a 550-square foot apartment. The organizer was charged, as they should have been and deserved to be.

This is not a game. Stay home. Be smart.

TheHill reports Law enforcement in Ewing Township, N.J., reportedly broke up a party Friday night with 47 people in a small apartment, despite recommendations from health officials amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The department confirmed it received an anonymous call about the alleged party Friday evening. Officers immediately dispersed the gathering that “the renter of the apartment called a ‘Corona Party,'” according to a Saturday statement.

The apartment renter, Wade Jackson, 47, was issued summonses for allegedly obstructing the administration of law or other governmental function and violating emergency and temporary acts, according to the statement.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) released an executive order earlier this month banning “gatherings of individuals, such as parties, celebrations, or other social events.”

Murphy tweeted Saturday, “Can’t believe I have to say this at all, let alone for the second time. But here we are. NO CORONA PARTIES. They’re illegal, dangerous, and stupid. We will crash your party. You will pay a big fine. And we will name & shame you until EVERYONE gets this message into their heads.”
