After SPIN!-Should there be penalties for not enforcing Coronavirus safety guidelines?

Published November 9, 2020

After SPIN! - Question to Brad Crone and Becki Gray – North Carolina citizens are alarmed when local businesses don’t take the requirement for face masks and social distancing seriously and many have filed complaints about particular businesses. Last week the Department of DHHS started making phone calls to those who have had complaints, warning them to get in line in observing the governor’s executive order. They were warned that it is a class two misdemeanor to fail to enforce these guidelines or else there will be further action. What do you think of this? Will it help to increase the use of face masks and social distancing? If not, should there be penalties or fines?
