NYC Residents Must Practice Social Distancing or Be Fined $500
New York – Refusing to practice social distancing now has a steep price tag.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday said residents of New York City who do not keep six feet away from others while outdoors face fines of between $250 and $500.
“It’s as simple as this,” the mayor said. “If someone is told by an officer ‘Disperse, keep moving,’ … and they don’t follow the direct instruction from the officer — or they say they’re doing it, then they come back right away — I’m comfortable at this point that they
will be fined.”
It comes as the city’s number of conformed coronavirus case rose to 32,308, with 678 deaths.
