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.

Maine, I hardly know ye.

looks like more and more geniuses are being Faucied

Are the masks useful to slow the spread of the virus? Probably not, but that isn’t relevant. What is relevant is the fact they are on the school’s property so the school makes the rules. Don’t like the rules? Tough – it’s still school property.

Just wear the mask. Yes, it’s stupid. Yes, it’s a waste. Don’t get into a pissing contest over it.
.

The local PD doesn’t issue summons for a violation of school policy. So it’s either staff of their school security. The town’s PD nor the town court has jurisdiction.

The school itself is
basically an online operation.

In fact the article is le is total bs as the town of Stanish doesn’t have a pd . The Country Sherriff handles the area.
