The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced on the 22nd that from the next day, people who take public transportation without wearing a Mask will be fined $50.

According to the "New York Daily News", the then Governor of New York State Cuomo asked commuters to wear masks in September last year, or face fines, but the New York Metropolitan Transportation Bureau has been taking gentle measures to implement the "Mask order." Cortes, a spokesman for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Bureau, said that only 41 violation summonses have been issued to passengers on subways, buses and railroad trains who have ignored the "mask order", which is equivalent to one issued approximately every 9 days. The volunteer organization "Mask Power" has distributed hundreds of thousands of masks for free in New York, and the ticket office in New York subway stations also provides free Masks.
