Concord city councilors aren’t keen on following the example set in Salem, where officials are considering levying fines to anyone who fails to wear a facemask in a public indoor place.
The proposed ordinance in the town near the Massachusetts state line would require anyone over age 2 to wear some type of face covering, or face up to a $200 fine. The board of selectmen discussed the matter during a virtual meeting Monday but didn’t vote on it. Some callers opposed the idea and felt the fine was too high.
