Trump’s indoor rally earns venue a $US3000 fine

Washington: The Nevada company that allowed President Donald Trump to hold a rally indoors with few masks and little social distancing faces fines for violating COVID-19 safety regulations.

The city of Henderson had warned Xtreme Manufacturing that the Sunday event would have to comply with state orders to keep gatherings under 50 people, to require facial coverings and to practice social distancing.

“During the event, a compliance officer observed six violations of the directives and the City’s Business Operations Division has issued a Business License Notice of Violation to Xtreme Manufacturing and assessed a penalty of $US3000 [$4100],” municipal spokeswoman Kathleen Richards said in an email.
