BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The official announcement is expected later this morning but to follow our Thursday night report, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to order Palm Beach County to order all non-essential businesses, all eat-in restaurants and all beaches to close — indefinitely. Following in the lead of Miami-Dade County which issued a similar order earlier this week, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which ordered all businesses not involved with saving lives to shut down, DeSantis is expected to tell Palm Beach County that it needs to be more serious about combatting the COVID-19 spread.
While beaches in the City of Boca Raton were closed days ago, beaches maintained by Palm Beach County remain open.
Massive changes to Palm Beach County’s response to COVID-19 are expected in just hours.
