A 200-plus-person party was busted at a Queens banquet hall early Saturday morning, according to the Sheriff's office.
At 1:40 a.m. Saturday, the Sheriff's office discovered approximately 215 people at the Queens Luxe Banquet Hall on Rockaway Boulevard in Queens.
The owner and three employees were given criminal court appearance tickets for violating emergency orders related to COVID-19, according to Sheriff Joe Fucito.
Partiers inside the hall were allegedly seen dancing, drinking alcohol without food, and smoking hookah without social distancing or mask-wearing.
Indoor gatherings with more than 50 people are prohibited under state coronavirus rules.
