Contra Costa residents could be fined $100 if they don’t follow the county’s rules around masks and social distancing — and that’s just for the first violation. The county will also issue a $250 first-time fine against businesses for violations.
The fines were enacted by the county's Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
You also have to wear one while dining outside at restaurants and when you’re less than six feet away from someone.
The fines ratchet up to $500 for third and additional violations for individuals. For businesses, fines double to $500 for second violations and $1,000 for each subsequent violation.
