Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore urged people Tuesday to celebrate a Dodgers win — if one comes — at home, given the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“They are safer at home. This COVID-19 virus is real,” he said.

Moore also said that officers are being deployed to Dodger Stadium and other strategic locations throughout the city “to ensure that people are acting lawfully” in the event crowds do gather, and will respond swiftly to any violence or vandalism in the streets.

“There will be no tolerance for violence,” he said. “There is no room in Los Angeles for people to commit vandalism.”
