BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moments ago (12:24 p.m. Friday, September 4, 2020) signed and transmitted an executive order permitting Palm Beach County to move to Phase 2 of Florida’s reopening Plan.

There is NO official start date — as of mid-day Friday — for the Palm Beach County School District. That may change over the next several hours.
Here is the executive order just issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis:
