[No masks, no social distancing on this boat in Boca Raton on Saturday, July 25, 2020].

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — With thanks to a BocaNewsNow.com reader who sent the photo, it appears there are more social distancing problems on the waters in and around Boca Raton.

This photo was taken earlier today (Saturday) in the area of Silver Palm Park which is 600 East Palmetto Park Road. Executive orders in effect suggest that what you see in the photo shouldn’t be happening.

While the waterway is in the City of Boca Raton, waterways are patrolled by both Boca Raton Police and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officers. Those contacting BocaNewsNow.com say they saw no law enforcement anywhere in the area.


Questions continue be raise about why law enforcement is not enforcing Palm Beach County and City of Boca Raton executive orders which require facial coverings, social distance, and adherence to CDC guidelines as COVID-19 remains a serious problem in the area.

  1. Unless behaviors change there will be consequences as evidenced by the daily 12,000 plus cases .
    Unless uncompliant behaviors and businesses are enforced you just have finger wagging.
    Its not ROCKET SCIENCE …WEAR A MASK ( covering your NOSE as well) SOCIAL DISTANCE ,6’ IN RESTAURANTS & WASH YOUR HANDS !
    If we follow simple basic rules we can get past this …its not asking anyone to walk over burning coals or a bed of nails
    Boca Raton leaders get a backbone ! If the data shows the rise and a high percent of positivity and increasing deaths and hospitalizations ..DO SOMETHING ! NEVER AGAIN….sound familiar

  2. but that data is not accurate. data reporting is agenda driven and changes everyday due to “programming errors. So it’s hard to believe the true severity of COVID-19. Following the rules to play along with the scenario desired by others is hard to do. This story itself is not as accurate as you may lead you to believe. Yes, there may be a few breaking the rules, but for the most part, people on boats are following them and the waterways are heavily patrolled.

    1. Which is it? Is it a democratic hoax or are they properly social distancing.

      Even Connie Donnie admits now we should wear masks and it’s a serious issue.

      When friends and relatives start passing or being hospitalized you will lose your simpleminded conspiracy theory that this is real.

      This comes from a republican who has lost two family members and a neighbor to this hoax.

  3. Boca Marine Police do an incredible job policing the waters of our community. You just can’t get into the middle of lake Boca once the grid develops. Maybe if they had wave runners they could.
    Signs posted and possible radio announcements would help. Also zero way to know if the large group lives together ???

  4. Maybe if the government would stop illegally requiring us to protect everybody else’s health this wouldn’t be an issue. Obviously the liberal writers at Boca news now are bias politically and hell-bent on making the citizens of Boca Raton look like assholes.. I’m definitely blocking the site from popping up in my newsfeed.

  5. Irrespective of COVID concerns the absolute unsafe conditions consisting of a large number of boats rafting togther with no means of fire or rescue craft having access is a conflgration waiting to happen. Add swimmers and propellors and the risk is forseen to any mariner. Conditions are unsafe in Lake Boca Raton. Signs, Hourly VHF broadcasts and a no ancoring or rafting safety channel running south to north bisecting thr Lake is essential.

  6. I was at Lake Boca on Saturday and this report is not accurate. While there were a lot of boats there were no large floatillas and boats were anchored up far apart. FAKE NEWS!
