The Chainsmokers are being fined for their drive in concert held in the Hamptons over the summer.
Images from the event quickly went viral and it appeared as if thousands were gathered without social distancing measured amid the Coronavirus pandemic. The event quickly went under investigation by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office.
Today, he announced a verdict in the case and they will be fined $20,000 for their participation in the event.
Videos from a concert held in Southampton on Saturday show egregious social distancing violations. I am appalled.
The Department of Health will conduct an investigation.
We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health.pic.twitter.com/gf9kggdo8w
