NYC “Mask Patrol” To “Aggressively” Enforce Face Covering Mandate


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in a press briefing on Tuesday new measures intended to “aggressively” enforce his mandatory mask order throughout the city.

Addressing alleged coronavirus “hotspots” in neighborhoods across the five boroughs, de Blasio said the city is adding hundreds of “Trace Corps” members to track COVID-positive New Yorkers and hundreds of additional city agency workers who will distribute masks and issue fines.

The city workers will be “handing out masks for free, encouraging testing, getting people good information and pushing back against misinformation,” according to the mayor.
