St. Lawrence County Attorney Steve Button explained to the legislators that changes in state law now give the county authority to fine businesses who don’t enforce the mask mandate up to $10,000. The county can also fine individual people up to $1,000 for violating the mandate. However, there haven’t been any discussions of using that authority, Button said.

Do you think businesses or individuals should be fined for not following the mask mandate?
