Milwaukee considers increase in fines for COVID-19 health violations


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) — Governor Tony Evers has called on businesses to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by limiting the number of people they let inside.

There’s a push to reinforce that effort in Milwaukee.

A city committee approved a tenfold increase in fines for bars and restaurants that violate health orders like capacity limits or mask mandates — from $500 to $5,000.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he’ll work with the city council to see if that’s the final number they agree on.
