Residents in Philadelphia who decide to disobey the stay at home order will pay a $2,000 fine, Your Content has learned.

The revelation comes just under two weeks after the $1,200 federal stimulus payments were distributed by the IRS. Now, residents or business owners could owe the initial $1,200 back, plus an additional $800 totaling $2,000 if they’re caught lurking with no legitimate reason.

Here are the updated violation penalties:

  • For businesses: The penalty for a violation of the business operation orders or any other regulation concerning those orders is now $2,000 per violation.
  • For individuals: The penalty for a violation of the orders is a fine of $500 per violation.
  • Enforcement officers also have the discretion to issue Code Violation Notices (CVNs) to allow payment of lesser amounts for violations of the orders to avoid being taken to court. They are:
  • $700 for violations subject to a $2,000 penalty.
  • $250 for violations subject to a $500 penalty. 

“If you don’t follow the orders, we will fine you and take you to court,” Mayor Jim Kenney said Thursday at his daily briefing.
