BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — With thanks to a reader who spent time on June 16th in the Publix at Boca Village Square, it appears we can visualize the issue that is leading the Palm Beach County Commission to consider a mandatory face covering requirement in all public buildings in Palm Beach County.
Our reader reports that all photos were taken within a 30 minute timeframe.
While wearing a facial covering is strongly suggested, law enforcement — currently — has little power to do anything about those people who refuse to wear facial coverings, even as infections soar in Palm Beach County.
Both the percent positive rate — and infection rates — are at all time highs. Palm Beach County has not been given the go ahead to move to “Phase Two,” in part because people — according to Gov. Ron DeSantis — have an issue wearing masks in Palm Beach County.
