NYC Airports And PATH Train To Impose $50 Mask Fines

The New York Daily News reports:

Mask up at the airport, in the bus terminals and on the PATH — or expect a $50 fine, the Port Authority said Thursday. The agency will begin Monday to impose the fines on those who refuse to wear masks at Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark airports, on the PATH trains that link Manhattan to New Jersey, and at the Port Authority’s bus terminals.

The move aims to give teeth to mask requirements imposed by gubernatorial executive orders in New York and New Jersey — and comes as the city’s rate of COVID-19 infections per tests increased to nearly 2%, a benchmark Mayor de Blasio on Thursday said could trigger business closures and more restrictions on gatherings.
