Northeastern Police today pleaded with students who remained behind in Boston after their campus shut down to stop partying in their off-campus apartments:
We realize that students have opted to remain at their rental properties here in Boston and in neighborhoods throughout the local area. While the vast majority of you have been ideal neighbors, we're learning from Boston Police that some college-aged renters are still having large social events inside of apartments. The noise from these social gatherings is disruptive to neighbors and, given the current COVID-19 crisis, the close proximity is also a risk to personal health.
Particularly at this trying time, please try to be Students Making Accountable Responsible Thoughtful neighbors (#SMARTneighbors). Thanks Huskies!
The Fenway and Mission Hill are not the only neighborhoods where people are continuing to party, even if not wearing masks. On Sunday, a South Boston resident filed a 311 complaint about partying on East 3rd Street:
There is a loud party going on. I do not want a party going on near me, I have a comprimised immune system. These 20 year old idiots need to understand this is a real problem.
