BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We are constantly amazed by the commentary we receive when executive orders are issued, like the executive order issued Friday requiring facial covering use in Palm Beach County while in Government buildings, and in supermarkets and pharmacies when social distancing isn’t possible.
The orders are designed to keep other people safe from you. Even protestors across the area, engaged in demonstrations over the past several days, have by and large been seen wearing facial coverings.
But don’t tell that to an emailer this morning by the name of “Steve.” Steve suggests that the media and county leaders are committing a crime — practicing medicine without a license — by issuing or reporting on the executive order.
Here is part of the email:
“Spreading malicious propaganda through an executive order by an elected official or bureaucratic administrator demanding that the population of Palm Beach County wear facial coverings for prolonged time periods is criminally liable for practicing medicine without a license. Thus, causing verifiable physical harm to all the residence of Palm Beach County, Florida.”
While citizens like Steve write emails like the one above, Palm Beach County logged its highest “percent positive” rates in more than a month over the past week — at one point hitting 10.5-percent.
That is an indicator of community spread.
