Maine College Imposes $50 Fine On Students Who Don’t Wear Masks
A Maine college is issuing $50 tickets to students who fail to wear a facemask while on campus property.
According to CBSN Boston, St. Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine, has issued more than 20 tickets to students who have violated the school’s masking policy.
Patrick Meyers, a St. Joseph’s College junior told CBSN Boston that the police issued him a fine for wearing his mask below his nose.
“He kind of just saw me slipping without a mask on,” Meyers said. “I had it below my nose and [the police] rolled right around to me said, ‘Hate to do this to you, but I got to give you a $50 fine.’”
Oliver Griswold, a spokesman for the school, said that the school is using “all of the tools at our disposal to try to keep COVID off campus.” The college doubled down on its decision to ticket students, claiming that they were given advance notices about all fines and policies.
Universities across the country have taken extreme measures to shield college students and faculty from the coronavirus. In some cases, schools such as Harvard University and the University of California system opted to shut down campuses entirely and move to virtual learning-only to mitigate the spread at the beginning of the pandemic.
