MASK ORDER

GREENFIELD — The City of Greenfield this summer joined numerous Monterey County cities with a mandatory mask order for anyone in public within the city limits, but issued a change to the order on Sept. 4. City Manager Paul Wood announced the change officially makes a violation of the mask order a misdemeanor to be issued under the administrative citation process, which he said will make the process simpler for all involved. The fine for first violation of Greenfield’s order is $100, second is $200, and the third and all following violations are $500.
