Beer Pong Allowed in the Park?
By an edhat reader
On Saturday I saw numerous tables at the Rose Garden set up for young adults to play Beer Pong - in a PANDEMIC! I did not see anyone wearing a mask or social distancing. The tiny signs prohibiting Picnics and Group Activities were ignored. Since we have been repeatedly told that alcohol is associated with the spread of COVID-19 it would appear that there is a conflict between allowing alcohol in parks too.
The Santa Barbara City Council will discuss mask enforcement throughout Tuesday starting at 2:00 p.m. To make a public comment and have a computer, internet access and a mic set up the Agenda item is #13.
