New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Imposes A $1,000 Fine For Anyone Not Wearing A Mask


New York City mayor just made a ridiculous decision.

Many people in New York City are still struggling financially from the coronavirus pandemic and to top things off Mayor de Blasio wants to give $ 1,0000 fines for those who are not wearing a mask.

The mayor of New York City announced on Tuesday that the city will impose fines on those who do not wear a mask being there has been a 3% increase of cases since June.

NPR covered the story and added these details to the story:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that the city will impose fines on people who refuse to wear face coverings, after it saw a positivity rate for coronavirus tests of over 3% for the first time since June.

The fine is up to $1,000, the mayor’s office told NPR.

City personnel will hand out free masks to anyone who is not wearing a face covering, the mayor said.

“Anyone who refuses to wear a face covering will be told that if they don’t put one on, they will be fined,” de Blasio said. He said it would start immediately and on a large scale. “That will happen aggressively, clearly.”

Instead of cleaning New York City Mayor de Blasio thinks that just wearing a mask will fix everything.

New York City is practically a ghost town and the only thing the New York City mayor has to say is wear a mask.

This decision will drive even more people out of NYC.

Fox News stayed busy and covered the story too:

New York City residents will face a hefty fine if they refuse to wear a mask in public this fall, according to Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio.

People who refuse to wear a mask or face covering will be fined up to $1,000, NPR reported. The policy was announced after New York City officials announced a spike in the local positivity rate for coronavirus tests.

“We don’t want to fine people, but if we have to, we will,” de Blasio said during a press conference on Tuesday.

The fine would apply to people who refuse to wear a mask when asked by a law enforcement officer or health official. Masks will be offered to people who do not have one. The policy took effect on Tuesday.
