Not Wearing a Mask in One Colorado City Could Mean a Year in Jail
The Emergency Order outlines a face-covering mandate for all members of the public 6 years of age or older. Face covers, or masks, must be worn outside of their home or place of residence.
Failure or refusal to wear masks during the COVID-19 pandemic in Englewood can carry a heft penalty. Englewood's Police Department and all code enforcement officials have been authorized and directed to enforce the orders of the Emergency Order as of July 10, 2020, at 8 a.m.
The first offense for failing to wear a mask is $15, the second offense is $25. However, the maximum penalty for person(s) violating the Emergency Order could face up to a $2,650 fine, imprisonment for up to 360 days, or both.
