BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. -  Butte County health officials are urging the public to not host any large gatherings this Labor Day weekend.

Chico Police officers say they will strongly be enforcing the rule this weekend. 

If you're planning on having a large gathering, it could end up costing you cash. Chico Police officials say they may hand out citations for violating a city ordinance prohibiting unruly gatherings if it poses a threat to public health.

The first citation would be $100, the second would be $200 and the third would be $500 dollars.

Mike Rodden, Commander at the Chico Police Department says they are taking a strong stance against large gatherings all throughout the city. The Chico State University Police Department will also assist in dealing with any large parties on the west side of town.

As cases spike, Butte County Health Officials are urging the public to not gather with anyone outside of their immediate household. 

Butte County Public Health director, Danette York says this is a requirement, not a suggestion or recommendation.

Police officers want to encourage community members to call them if they see any large parties taking place.
