CORONAVIRUS: Boca Retirement Communities Called Out Over Coronavirus

Coronavirus News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com is receiving lots of email from readers who say area retirement communities, including Century Village, are not closing their pools — creating social distancing issues for a segment of the population considered to be “high risk.”

While the average age of those infected with COVID-19 is now down to 49 in Palm Beach County, health officials agree that those over 65 remain at high risk. Area HOA’s and most country clubs have closed their pools. All beaches, parks and golf courses in Palm Beach County — whether part of a city or not — are now shut. Communities are technically allowed to do what they want to do, but it is incomprehensible say those reaching out that Century Village wouldn’t make a smart choice.

If you have photos of open public pools, areas where people are congregating, or blatant violation of the “social distancing” concept, please send them to us at news(at)bocanewsnow.com.

If you have video, send us a note and we’ll send you a link for sharing.
