New Jersey Man Charged For Hosting ‘Corona Party’ With 47 People In Small Apartment Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Police in Ewing, N.J., reportedly broke up a party Friday night among 47 people in a small apartment, despite recommendations from health officials amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Authorities confirmed they 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 E. Jackson, 47, was issued summonses for allegedly obstructing the administration of law or other governmental function, and violating the “Emergency and Temporary Acts,” according to the statement.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) released an executive order earlier this month canceling “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.”

New Jersey reported 2,289 new coronavirus cases Saturday, with a total of 11,124 in the state. At least 140 have died in New Jersey from the virus, Murphy told reporters Saturday.
