National News // Sept. 22, 2020

A boat party on Lake Constance over the weekend annoyed Swiss authorities as a mask requirement seems to have been widely ignored and German authorities because it was too loud.

Aftershock Boat party upsets two countries

Around 700 partiers with several DJs joined the boat on Saturday night at Romanshorn in canton Thurgau. Despite clear signs telling people they will have to wear a mask as social distancing would be impossible onboard – social media pictures showed many failed to do so.

Also, the German lake police paid the boat a visit as the music could be heard on the other banks.

Organizers say they complied with all the rules and told guests they had to wear a mask and they have all their contract details.
