Governor Implements New Mask Rules
Governor J.B. Pritzker has a plan that could lead to fines on businesses that refuse to enforce public health guidance. Pritzker has filed emergency rules in an attempt to increase business compliance with the wearing of face masks and social distancing. The process would first involve warnings and if a lack of compliance continued, fines up to $2500.The rules would also apply to schools and child care providers. But the governor stopped short of fining individuals. Pritzker says local officials can determine if they want to take that step.
