(CNN)Video from a Northern California outdoor religious concert shows hundreds of people crowding together and most of them not wearing masks -- drawing criticism from a local health department that says the gathering violated state coronavirus rules.
After hundreds gathered at a California faith event without masks, officials ask them to self-quarantine
Shasta County's health department is asking people who attended Wednesday evening's Christian music and faith event in Redding to self-quarantine for 14 days, get tested and monitor for possible symptoms.
"While outdoor faith gatherings are allowed, this event did not follow state guidelines" such as people staying 6 feet apart or wearing masks when that's not possible, and therefore the event "put our community at risk," the county agency said in a news release.
The event was publicized by Hold The Line, a faith-based political activist movement created by Sean Feucht, a Christian worship musician in Northern California who ran and lost in a March primary for the state's 3rd Congressional District seat.
Feucht and bandmates played under Redding's Sundial Bridge in front of hundreds. Video obtained by
