Mask Order Unclear

Mask Order Unclear
Yesterday Governor Northam meekly asked that masks be worn in indoor public spaces, but his statement does not match the actual text of the order:

“… any willful violation or refusal, failure, or neglect to comply with this order … is punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.”

Class  1 misdemeanors are the most serious misdemeanors in Virginia. A Class  1 misdemeanor is punishable by up to 12  months in jail, a fine of up to $2,500, or both.
