Oxford Police Department cited six men who attended a house party Saturday, and one of them was supposed to be under quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 a week prior.
Bodycam footage shows a group of men gathered outside a home on E. Walnut Street, and none of them are wearing masks.
An Oxford PD officer approaches the gathering, and one of the partygoers tells the officer that 20 people attended.
He runs one of the student’s IDs and then calls the young man over.
Officer: I’ve never seen this before. There’s an input on the computer that you tested positive for COVID.
Officer: When was this?
Student: This was a week ago.
Officer: Are you supposed to be quarantining?
Student: Yeah. That’s why I’m at my house.
Officer: So you have other people here, and you’re positive for COVID?
Student: I mean…
Officer: You see the problem? How many other people have COVID?
Student: They all do.
Officer: Everybody has it?
Student: Well, and them — [gestures to house across the street]
Officer: And everybody over here has it?
Student: Well, I think two.
Officer: That’s what we’re trying to prevent, man.
Student: I know.
Officer: We’re trying to keep this town open.
Student: I know. That’s why I’m staying home.
