mask fine going up


Forewarned is forearmed.

the "Corona Cabinet" decided a short while ago to increase the fine for not wearing a mask in public (and for not wearing a mask properly) from 200nis to 500nis.

As well, they decided to ramp up enforcement and have more police/inspectors out looking for violations of the mask-wearing policy.

I heard a number of times from people that the fine is not high enough to make them wear it, combined with the very low chance of being stopped by a policeman due to low levels of enforcement. Maybe at this higher rate, along with increased enforcement, people who until now did not find it enough of a deterrent now will.
