L.A. Mask Violators Face Jail and Fines

Despite a previous lack of enforcement, and following local demonstrations by anti-mask groups at shopping malls, grocery stores and homeless encampments, the Los Angeles City Council moved Wednesday to bolster restrictions and subject more violators to financial penalties, reports the Los Angeles Times.  The council unanimously voted to order city attorneys to draft a law that would impose fines and penalties on those who refuse to wear a mask at indoor businesses when requested to do so by management, and on individuals who refuse to wear a mask when “invading someone’s personal space.”  The decision comes in response to multiple high-profile incidents in recent weeks in which anti-maskers descended upon crowds to protest restrictions.
