BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Facial Covering executive order been updated — and the new order looks a lot like the old order.
Here’s the language of the Executive Order which is now in effect (5 p.m. Saturday, May 16, 2020):
All persons working in, patronizing, or otherwise physically present in grocery stores, restaurants while not seated, pharmacies, construction sites, vehicles for hire, and locations where social distancing measures not possible should wear facial coverings as defined by the CDC.
We again note the use of the word “should.” That makes this order more of a strong suggestion — there is apparently no penalty for non-compliance, except the ridicule of your neighbors and others who will undoubtedly note your selfishness and unwillingness to keep other people safe.
Local municipalities, under the EO, can order stronger compliance requirements.
