COVID-19 Spike In Orthodox Jewish NYC Neighborhoods Prompts Mask Crackdown

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday he was cracking down on a few Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods following a spike in COVID-19 infections.

According to HuffPost, city officials will start issuing fines in those areas to people who refuse to wear masks.

Hundreds of outreach workers and contact tracers are going to nine Brooklyn and Queens ZIP codes that have seen an upswing in positive COVID-19 tests.
