BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Bars across Palm Beach County must remain closed as Phase 2 begins Tuesday morning. The bad news for bar owners and patrons was delivered by Palm Beach County Mayor David Kerner during a Friday afternoon news conference.
Kerner said the bar closures are a result of an executive order issued by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, not the Palm Beach County Board of Commissioners.
The Palm Beach County Phase 2 plan begins on Tuesday. Unlike other counties in the state which moved to Phase 2 quite some time ago, Palm Beach County will take baby steps, with just a few entities permitted to open as part of each step. We expect the full opening document later Friday.
Significant concern remains that reopening — in any major form — will lead to a a Palm Beach County increase in COVID-19 spread, infections and death.
