NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT/ WTVF) - The Metro Nashville Health Department issued 48 civil warrants against businesses for non-compliance with the city’s mask order, according to CBS affiliate WTVF.

Hugh Atkins, with the Metro Public Health Department, confirmed the update Tuesday during Metro’s COVID-19 briefing. Atkins said the civil warrants were issued to businesses whose “employees were found out of compliance with the mask ordinance.”

Civil warrants seek monetary punishment rather than jail time.

Metro’s mask order requires everyone to wear facial coverings in indoor and outdoor public spaces and requires businesses to post signage at their entrances stating all employees, customers and visitors must wear masks.

Anyone who violates the order faces a civil or criminal penalty, including a Class C Misdemeanor and a fine up to $50.
