In addition to the 103 fines, Augustus said the city’s interdepartmental enforcement team also issued 128 verbal warnings. The team also issued educational material about how to better enforce the mandate to 433 businesses during routine checks. Augustus has said the city wants to avoid fines toward businesses due to the mandate, but repeat offenders would be penalized.

The mask mandate went into effect on Sept. 20. An order accompanying the mandate also requires businesses in the city to report all workplace COVID cases to the board of health. The mandate includes any communal space or common space in an indoor facility of any type.
