Businesses Could Now Face $10K Fine for Violating COVID-19 Rules, Capacity Limits
Businesses that violate the state’s COVID-19 sector rules and capacity limits could be fined up to $10,000 per violation, the governor’s office announced Tuesday.
The new fine, declared by executive order, is a dramatic increase from the previous fine of $500. The order will go into effect on 12:01 a.m. on Thursday and is the result of feedback from local leaders, public health officials, and the business community, according to the governor’s office.
