BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida’s “phase one” reopening continues in Palm Beach County and will for quite some time if residents and visitors don’t comply with rules and regulations in effect. We continue to receive photos of boaters, of partiers, even preschool teachers in large groups without masks.
Among the most common violations: people who believe that masks only need to be worn over a mouth, not a nose. It’s like believing your sliding screen door will stop the smell of smoke from entering your home.
Among the most common violations: people who believe that masks only need to be worn over a mouth, not a nose.
Palm Beach County is now laying the groundwork to issue civil and criminal violations for those who don’t comply. The recent rewording of an executive order — reaffirming that Palm Beach County law enforcement has the authority to enforce state and county civil orders — speaks volumes.
But so do your photos.
If you see violations, people blatantly wearing masks improperly, people engaged in partying, group activities or other bad behavior, snap a photo, take video, send it to us. We now have a drag and drop form that makes it easier than ever to submit your news to BocaNewsNow.com.
The pediatric positivity rate remains at nearly 15-percent. The only way kids go back to school — and life returns to normalcy — is if the bad actors amongst us are incentivized to get with the program.
Use this form to submit your photos to us.
