Police Set to Breakup Holiday Dinners if They Break COVID Rules

This is simply dumbfounding.

Health experts have been very publicly concerned with the possibility that cooler fall and winter temperatures could bring about a massive resurgence of COVID-19 cases.

The reason has little to do with how the virus itself reacts to the more moderate weather, but, rather, how human beings react.  As the air chills, we find ourselves spending ever more time indoors and in close quarters – conditions favorable to the spread of the coronavirus.

This includes holiday gatherings for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve – events that could soon be policed in order to make sure individuals are adhering to COVID-19 ordinances in the UK.

Police chiefs have warned that Christmas family celebrations will be broken up by officers if they flout lockdown rules.

David Jamieson, the West Midlands police and crime commissioner, said officers will investigate reports of rule-breaking over the festive period.

The West Midlands are currently under Tier 2 restrictions, meaning people cannot mix with any other households or bubbles inside.

‘It’s not the police’s job to stop people enjoying their Christmas. However, we are there to enforce the rules that the Government makes, and if the Government makes those rules then the Government has to explain that to the public.’

While there are no overt threats of this sort of thing happening here in the United States, it would be easy to imagine a rather sizable outcry against the idea.
