The following is a press release from the Spicer administration.
FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public Health Department, with support from the City’s Police Department, has begun to levy fines for those violating the Governor’s Order on gatherings to help curb the spread of COVID-19. Framingham’s current spike in COVID-19 cases can be attributed to gatherings across the City.
Under the Governor’s Order, those who violate the restrictions on gatherings can be fined $500 per incident.
For single-family homes, it is the property owner or the renters of the homes who could be fined.
For multi-family dwellings, such as apartment and condominium complexes, the City will work to identify the one hosting the gathering to determine who should be fined. If the event is held in a common area of an apartment or condominium complex, the property owner could be liable.
