In Winfield, where a face mask mandate went into effect about two weeks ago, police say they have focused more on education than they have on enforcement. While Winfield Police can write tickets for not wearing masks, they say so far, none have been written, and the focus has been entirely on educating the public. Back on July 10th, an ordinance was passed by the Winfield City Commission, requiring face masks in public spaces where social distancing is not possible. The only exceptions are for people with medical conditions and children younger than five. Anyone violating the ordinance can be fined up to $25 for a first offense, up to $50 for the second, and up to $100 for the third. Police say actually writing tickets will only be done as an absolute last resort. Anyone who needs a mask, but doesn’t have one, can stop by the police department and get one. The Winfield city commission will revisit the ordinance and decide whether to extend it or let it expire at their next meeting, which is set for August 13th.
