New York State Liquor Authority board have been slammed after board members failed to wear face coverings during a meeting where they issued fines to businesses breaking the safety rule.
The SLA chairman Vincent Bradley and commissioners Lily Fan and Greeley Ford did not wear face masks during Wednesday’s meeting.
The board members, who sat with distance between them, were reviewing bar and restaurant fines during the live-streamed meeting, Times Union reported.
A member of staff, who was also not wearing a face covering, enters the meeting at one point and hands papers to Ford, who stands up behind an unmasked Bradley to accept the documents.
Around ten minutes after the interaction, the board fined an unnamed organisation $1,500 due to ’employees with no masks’.
