CORONAVIRUS: Face Covering Order In Palm Beach County

BocaNewsNow.com

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We are receiving a significant amount of email and phone call requests for information concerning Face Coverings and “Phase One” of the reopening plan that starts Monday morning.

The simple answer is: don’t be a selfish idiot, wear a face covering to protect other people.

The not so simple answer is: The City of Delray Beach just proved why Palm Beach County needs to make an official statement which so far has not happened. If you haven’t been following along, Delray Beach issued a statement on Friday erroneously saying that Gov. Ron DeSantis said face coverings are no longer needed. That’s not true. The City then walked that back Saturday afternoon and said you should continue to wear a face mask, but it isn’t truly required.


In a confusing world of State, County and Town/City Executive Orders, we have reached out to Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner to clarify what policy truly is. Palm Beach County has the power to set policy for everyone in the County, regardless of what the City of Delray Beach, the City of Boca Raton or the Town of Highland Beach wants to do. We’ll let you know when we hear back. For now, be smart and be kind: follow CDC guidance and wear a face mask. You may not be protecting yourself, but you may be keeping someone’s grandparents alive.
