Zero businesses in Delaware have received fines in the weeks since the Delaware Division of Public Health announced a zero-tolerance enforcement policy for COVID-19 restrictions.
The Delaware State News reported Monday that the zero-tolerance policy took effect Dec. 14.
It calls for an immediate fine for a first violation of COVID-19 restrictions. Businesses are subject to closure for a second violation, pending a reopening plan for DPH approval.
Businesses were being fined hundreds of dollars before the no-tolerance policy took effect. The violations were for such things as lack of appropriate face coverings among staff and a lack of social distancing among customers.
