Yeah, Connecticut doesn't have fines for not wearing a mask. That said, most businesses will not let you inside without wearing them. We also have roaming herds of rabid overprotective soccer moms who will publicly shame you on Facebook for not wearing a mask in public They're probably one of the real reasons why the ban gets enforced as well as it does, and we're not seeing a resurgence in cases here.They don't have to fine individuals. All they have to do is tell businesses, organizations, and government offices to require them and if the they don't try then you can fine them. If a business tries to enforce it and law enforcement is required because an individual will not comply, well then that individual will be charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, or whatever other existing laws they broke. Much easier than fining individuals and threatening them with a year in jail over a mask, which everyone knows will be thrown out in a year anyway and likely result in lawsuits against the arresting departments.
