ORDER EFFECTIVE WHEN SIGNED BY COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR
POLICE WILL PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLY BEFORE TAKING ACTION
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A contentious Palm Beach County Commission Meeting just led to a unanimous vote in favor of a facial covering mandate in Palm Beach County.
While the order has yet to be transmitted, previous versions of the mask mandate included a requirement to wear a facial covering in ALL public buildings in Palm Beach County — including supermarkets, retail and restaurants — as well as any other indoor public location.
Many speakers who appeared to be frequent commenters at commission meetings strongly voiced their anger, claiming that a mask order is civil rights violation, reminiscent of Nazi Germany, and all part of the “fake” COVID-19 pandemic.
The mandate passed 7-0. There was no opposition. No one abstained. It was not immediately clear how long the order will be in effect. There was discussion of several months to as long as a year.
