Nashville Police say they'll be issuing mask warnings only...at least for now.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Nashville Police will initially give Metro residents a pass on the new mandatory face mask requirement.
The new Health Department order requiring a face mask be worn in most public settings went into effect on Sunday.
Violations carry Class C misdemeanor punishments. That means a $50 fine or 30 days in jail.
However, Metro Police say they’ll be issuing citizen advisories “until further notice.” Residents caught without a mask will get a printed advisory and a warning.
