No Enforcement In Palm Beach International Airport, Passengers On Delta Flight Ignore Flight Attendant Orders
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com was on board a Delta flight Wednesday night where flight attendants continuously had to remind passengers to not just wear masks, but wear masks over their noses.
One passenger — the man seen above — was told multiple times by the flight crew to wear his mask, but he removed his mask repeatedly after flight attendants walked by. Like a kid in school hiding candy, the man covered his mouth with his hand, turned his head away from flight attendants, and spent much of the flight trying to not get caught. He kept his mask around his neck, but not over his mouth and nose. When the plane landed, despite an order to keep masks on — per Palm Beach County executive order — he removed it to make phone calls. Anyone else making phone calls did so with their masks on.
Delta Airlines couldn’t be more adamant. You are required to wear a mask at all times on board unless you have a medical authorization approved prior to flight.
During flight, several passengers insisted on wearing their masks beneath their noses — negating the purpose of wearing a mask at all.
The observations follow our post earlier in the week on passengers at PBI — Palm Beach International Airport — also not wearing masks, despite the Palm Beach County order requiring them to do so. While small signs announcing the order are posted, no airport personnel patrol the airport to enforce the mask order.
The lack of enforcement raises questions about just how seriously Palm Beach County is in not just enforcing the executive order, but alerting inbound passengers to Palm Beach County that a mask mandate is in effect.
