Local authorities can currently impose a 1,000 fine for violating a state travel adviser or a misdemeanor charge, which many local officials consider excessive.
“Not much has really been done, as many have seen [a misdemeanor charge] Excessive rudeness for failing to wear a mask as if you can’t socially distance yourself, “Jebel told Kurant.” So they asked for this new tool, a breach that was a bit of a step-down implementation. “
Penalties already exist for some individual municipalities in the state, such as the city of Simsbury, where violations of masking or social distance orders are punishable by a 250 fine.
“It’s come again and at a time where we felt it was the right thing to do,” Ge Ge told Kurant.
