11 Washington Business Accused Of Mask Violations

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) – State officials say investigators have fined 11 Washington businesses accused of failing to enforce portions of the state’s face mask mandate.

The state Department of Labor & Industries said Wednesday in a news release that Mail Express Business Center in Enumclaw got the largest fine at $7,500.

KING-TV reports that investigators determined customers and employees there were not wearing masks and no signs were posted about the mandate.

According to L&I, the owner told investigators she did not enforce masking because, “she did not want to be an unpaid agent of the government.”
