Park City police blotter: Partiers not socially distancing
The Park City Police Department on Saturday received a report of a party in Park Meadows that left someone concerned about the number of people and whether they were socially distancing themselves.
The police received the report at 7:47 p.m. The gathering was on or close to Little Kate Road, apparently in the vicinity of the intersection with Red Pine Court, the police were told.
The person who contacted the police described there being a “large amount of people” who were not practicing social distancing. The police logged the case as suspected disturbing the peace.
The report was one in a series of complaints to the police since the spring about concerns regarding people who were described as not practicing social distancing, a key strategy as the community continues to attempt to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
