It wasn’t clear if there was one party or many in violation of COVID-19 capacity restrictions, police say. Chicago police dispersed several people from the Congress Plaza Hotel on New Year’s Eve because of overcrowding that violated COVID-19 restrictions.
Officers responded to the hotel about 10:35 p.m. in the 500 block of South Michigan Avenue and found at least one room that was filled over capacity, according to a police spokeswoman.
It wasn’t clear if there was one party or many in violation of COVID-19 capacity restrictions, the spokeswoman said.
A police report was not filed, so additional details weren’t available.
Two employees who answered Congress Hotel’s phone Friday wouldn’t comment and were unable to provide a manager who could.
At least 370 businesses have been cited by the city for violating coronavirus restrictions since the pandemic began in March.
