Refusing to Wear a Mask in Berkeley Can Now Get You Fined $100

Going maskless in Berkeley could now get you fined.

In an effort to crack down on those refusing to follow the city's mask and social distancing mandates, the Berkeley City Council passed an ordinance Tuesday night that allows enforcement officers to issue a $100 administrative citation if someone fails to comply after a warning.

The new mask ordinance will be enforced by environmental health and neighborhood services and other city divisions, who will focus on citing large gatherings in parks, restaurants and parties — especially involving college students.

Berkeley’s mask mandate requires everyone to wear a face covering when outside and within 30 feet of another person, unless you:

• Have documentation from a medical professional that advises you not to wear a face covering
• Have trouble breathing or a physical disability that prevents you from wearing a face covering
• Are not able to take off a face covering without help
• Are in a work situation where wearing a face covering would create a safety hazard

1. Good old Berkeley. I would expect nothing less.

Lived on Grant and Bancroft back in the day, across from a commune.
