Police have been told to provide notice that power will be shut off at properties where large gatherings frequently occur.

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti has made good on his previous threat to shut off power to buildings where social distancing is not practiced, including churches.

In March, Garcetti threatened to cut off power to any “irresponsible and selfish” private entity that defied shutdown orders, which in California currently include a ban on indoor religious services in 29 counties representing 80 percent of the state’s population, in the name of containing the spread of COVID-19. Numerous churches have defied the order, including Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, Cornerstone Church of Fresno, Destiny Christian Church of Rocklin, and Harvest Rock Church of Pasadena.

Last Wednesday, Garcetti announced that, effective the following Friday evening, “if LAPD responds and verifies that a large gathering is occurring at a property, and we see these properties offending time and time again, they will provide notice and initiate the process to request that DWP shut off service within the next 48 hours.”
