SALEM, Ore. (AP)--A Salem hair salon will be fined $14,000 after reopening against Gov. Kate Brown's executive orders meant to slow the coronavirus pandemic.

The Statesman Journal reports Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division is fining salon owner and stylist Lindsey Graham specifically, requiring that she and her independently contracted stylists close until approved to reopen.

Once she receives the notice Graham will have three days to close doors. If not, she could be fined again.

Graham argues it's her right to work so she can provide for her family.
