COVID-19 is making a comeback in many states, most likely due to more testing. In certain parts of Washington state, you could find yourself charged with a misdemeanor if you’re not wearing a mask.
From CBS News:
A county in Washington state has run out of hospital beds because of a recent spike in coronavirus cases — and now, Washington Governor Jay Inslee says the entire state is going to take a more aggressive approach to handling the pandemic.
