Enforcement of This Policy
We have established a complaint team that will evaluate the complaints and determine the best way to provide education to individuals and businesses that are noncompliant with the face covering section of the Order. The goal of this team is to insure that face coverings are worn when required by providing education first before looking towards enforcement. When necessary, enforcement will generally focus on businesses or individuals that despite attempts to educate continue to violate the Order, such as businesses who do not require customers and/or staff to wear masks at large indoor events or gatherings. If a citation is issued within the City of Madison the ticket amount would be $376, if it is issued outside of the City under the County ordinance the ticket amount is $263.50.
Your Role as an Individual
You should not ask someone why they aren’t wearing a mask. It is not your job to intervene if someone isn’t wearing a mask. Some people have conditions or circumstances that would make wearing a cloth face covering difficult or dangerous. Your job is to wear your mask and stay six feet away from others. See this section for more information.
