On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, the Glendale City Council declared that those who do not comply with the Public Order to wear a face covering will incur fines. Under the order businesses may refuse service to those refusing to wear masks. The Order also authorizes administrative citations starting at $400 for a first violation, $1,000 for a second violation, and $2,000 for a third violation. The fines will apply to businesses too.
To aid in the implementation of health and safety measures, Glendale is offering free signs for pick up at Glendale City Hall located at 613 E Broadway, at the back entrance (Monday-Thursday, 7:30am-5:30pm and Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm).
