Hoboken launches survey on proposed face mask ordinance

The City of Hoboken is seeking public input on a proposed ordinance that includes a potential $250 fine for individuals who do not wear face masks in outdoor situations where social distancing is not possible, such as crowded locations in public places.

Residents and visitors would not be subject to a fine where social distancing can be maintained, such as sitting in a park with family and socially distanced at least six feet from others, participating in a socially distanced workout in a city field while maintaining six feet of distance from others, and other similar situations.

Hoboken residents are invited to fill out a survey at http://www.hobokennj.gov/facemasksurvey.

The proposed ordinance with a potential for a $250 fine mirrors the current regulation in place in New Jersey, which currently mandates that face masks be worn in outdoor situations when social distancing is not possible.

The ordinance will be considered on second reading at the regularly scheduled city council meeting on August 19, which will take place virtually.
