The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said it will start issuing $50 fines to people not wearing face coverings at its airports, Manhattan bus terminals and subways.

Since March, the agency has used posters, public-service announcements and other means “to make travelers aware of the health and safety protocols” amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Starting Monday, travelers “could be liable for the new recommended fine of $50,” according to a news release.
