Stiffer penalties needed for businesses not enforcing the wearing of masks!

Studies have shown that if everyone were to wear a mask the risk of getting COVID would drop significantly. Unfortunately many businesses are still not enforcing them. Please change this by putting in place stiffer penalties for those not following the mandate! People who are immunocompromised, the elderly, and those who have underlying health issues still have to go out to get groceries, and they still have to work. They cannot just stay home, as anti-maskers suggest. Please protect these populations and protect us all by instituting stiff penalties for individuals not wearing them, and for businesses that blatantly disregard the mandate!
