The Madison County Health Department has issued its first two citations to area businesses for violating New York state’s face covering Executive Order.

Health Department officials say employees at Troyer’s Country Store in Cazenovia and Cone Masters in Munnsville were seen not wearing face masks when they were in contact with members of the pubic.

Each business was fined $500.
