    Default Covid masks in Belgium

    Belgium is making masks mandatory in public places like shops, musea etc.
    A fine of 250,- is imposed for not complying citizens, a fine of 750,- is imposed on shop owners etc. for not complying ( first offense).
    Perhaps it is a way to regain control over the virus.

    It is bound to help. Boris is considering a similar policy.

    Meanwhile Ohio has mandatory masks in certain areas (all metro) - but no fines & no one checking. Seriously!

    Face coverings are now compulsory in Scotland's shops and on public transport.

    There is a 60 fine for non-compliance and an increasing scale for repeat offenders..

    The problem these days is that everybody knows their rights..
    Don't get me wrong, that's a good thing, but it makes our job harder.
