The specific parameters were not yet defined.

As of Monday, the state stuck to the limits of 25 people indoor and 100 outdoor.

The limits do not apply to restaurants or businesses. It is unclear at this time if they apply to churches.

There was already an executive order in place for violating mask rules, but it was a misdemeanor which could have included an arrest.

The governor’s team said no one was really enforcing it with any strict consequences, so that’s why they’re shifting to the fine.
