Murphy Shows Mask Defying Restaurant Owner; Fines Issued After She Told Employees They Don’t Have to Wear Masks

UNION CITY, NJ – Phil Murphy is watching small business across New Jersey and holding police officers’ feet to the fire to enforce his executive orders.   In Union City, one rebellious restaurant owner was put in her place after it became known that she wasn’t requiring her employees to wear face coverings.  Mask up Iris.  Period. Full stop.  Iris L. Diaz, 51, of Union City, N.J., was charged on May 24 by the Union City Police for not requiring that masks be worn by employees at her restaurant, Punto de la Baleda on 37th Street. Responding officers saw Diaz and an employee preparing food without wearing face coverings. The business had been warned earlier that day for the same violations.
