With COVID-19 cases continuing to spike throughout Los Angeles County - forcing bars, restaurants and nightclubs to shut their doors to remain in compliance with state mandates, 'underground parties with hundreds of people continue to take place every weekend,' according to FoxLA, which has been conducting an undercover investigation for several months.
H/T: Zero Hedge
As coronavirus case numbers continue to rise and we face tighter restrictions, it's restaurants that are paying the price. Restaurant owners have expressed fear that the outdoor dining ban, which kicked in Wednesday night, may put them out of business for good.
However, evidence shows it's private parties and large gatherings that are fueling the spread. And so far, nothing has been able to slow it down.
On Wednesday night in Beverly Hills, just hours before the outdoor dining ban kicked in for LA County restaurants, SkyFOX was over a large gathering with dozens of people congregated together. The type of gathering health officials haven't been able to stop.

As L.A. County restaurants are about to unfairly pay the price for a surge in #COVID19 cases in LA, we continue our investigations into the ongoing underground party scene.
