Atlanta, Ga. - According to reports from Air BnB, the company has closed down a total of fifty listings within the City of Atlanta.
These closures are the result of violations of the rental company's regulations. All of these violations are in connection to large house parties being held in the rentals from Vine City to Buckhead.
This seems to be the company's response to a shooting that occurred outside of a house party at an Air BnB in Northwest Atlanta. Not only are there concerns as a result of the amount of alcohol and drug related offenses but also concerns about the significantly increased numbers of coronavirus within the state of Georgia.
