When bars and nightclubs shutdown due to the pandemic, people turned to house parties and now Airbnb is saying NOPE.
Airbnb says they will limit occupancy in its rental homes to 16 people and are banning house parties worldwide to comply with health mandates. Not only that. but the company is also saying they may pursue legal action against guests and hosts who violate the ban. Last week, for the first time, Airbnb took legal action against a guest who held an unauthorized party in Sacramento County, California.
