MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - The mayor of Holmes Beach tells ABC7 that beginning June 28, fines will be issued for individuals not wearing masks inside local businesses.

The fine will be $250 for your first offense and $500 for the second. The mayor says that the city will be working to educate business owners, residents and guests.

The Manatee County Commission recently decided not to pass a mandate requiring residents to wear mask. Instead they passed an advisory strongly suggesting that individuals wear masks when in public.
