Bizarre Announcement Is Contrary To CDC, County and Federal Guidance
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In a bizarre email blast sent out Friday night, the City of Delray Beach says that facial coverings are no longer needed. Never mind the CDC’s strong suggestion that facial coverings be worn pretty much anywhere in public, the City of Delray Beach says you don’t need to wear them there.
Here is the official email announcement. Keep in mind, just because you have a Delray Beach address doesn’t mean you live in the City of Delray Beach. All of the GL Communities and country clubs in West Delray Beach — which are “unincorporated Palm Beach County” — still require face coverings. You can see where you live by clicking the “where do I live” button on the menu, above.
From Delray Beach:
“In keeping with the order issued April 29, 2020 by Governor Ron Desantis, the City of Delray Beach will end its stay at home order and curfew, and will no longer mandate the use of facial coverings, effective immediately.
The City encourages everyone to continue to follow all Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations regarding physical distancing and similar measures meant to prevent or slow the spread of the virus.”
