The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood Station will begin citing people for not wearing face coverings.
After receiving a number of complaints, the department says it was time to take action, and in response will begin issuing $250 citations this month, following Gov. Gavin Newsom's statewide mandatory face covering rule on June 18.
A second offense will come with a $1,000 fine, and a third with a $2,000 fine. A fourth offense of being caught not wearing a mask will result in a $5,000 fine. All the fines have a $50 processing fee added on.
