DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Reversing a hastily announced policy change made on Friday, the City of Delray Beach now says that masks should be worn in public until further notice.
In a bizarre email sent Friday misrepresenting comments from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Delray officials said The Phase One reopening meant masks were no longer required.
That’s not what “phase one” guidelines say at all.
Delray officials now apparently appreciate their misstep. In a late Saturday afternoon media advisory, the City now says masks should be used.
From the City of Delray Beach:
“While the Governor’s order provides a gradual loosening of restrictions, the State, County and City continue tostrongly urge all persons to adhere to CDC guidelines including isolation for 14 days following travel, avoiding gathering in groups of 10 or more people, wearing facial coverings when outside your home and practicing social distancing.”
