For 24 hours, a Twitter poll asked students if they would report a large gathering or party that violates the local health order.
As it stands now, all gatherings larger than 50 people in Riley County must have a permit.
Of the 392 respondents, 40.8 percent said they would report those gatherings “without a doubt,” but 40.1 percent said they would not. The remaining 19.1 percent said they didn’t know what they would do in that situation.
One participant said they would report a gathering or party that exceeded the gathering limit because they want to see Kansas State have fall sports for the marching band to play at. Another said they would report it because they’re concerned about starting an outbreak in the residence halls and the potential that could have to force the university to close down.
On the other hand, one additional respondent to the poll said they would not report a gathering because “I’m not the party police or mask police!”
