Airbnb: No parties at Indy rental properties, will work with IMPD – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather forecast
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — While some businesses have begun to reopen, there are still a number of restrictions in place.
Hoosiers are always asked to avoid large gatherings, such as parties and Memorial Day festivities.
Airbnb is now warning against large gatherings at rental properties listed with them in Indianapolis.
The company released a statement, saying in part:
The month of May brings many moments worth celebrating for Hoosiers – from high school and college graduations to Memorial Day weekend festivities.
In typical circumstances, Airbnb allows our hosts to establish house rules about events and parties that are appropriate for their communities. However, we live in very different times and public health must come first. To that end, we previously announced that we would not allow hosts to allow parties and events in areas where current public health mandates prohibit events and gatherings. Governor Holcomb’s “Get Indiana Back On Track” plan still prohibits large social gatherings in the state, which means our new policy means we won’t allow any type of party in Indianapolis until further notice.
Additionally, the company also states that it will bar any guests who attempt to host an “unauthorized” party on one of its Indianapolis listings and will work with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department in any investigation that may arise from a potential party or gathering.
