DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Several readers reached out to BocaNewsNow.com on Saturday to report several shoppers in a Delray Beach Walmart were not wearing masks. Or more accurately, not wearing masks the way masks are expected to be worn per Palm Beach County Executive Order. Masks are to be worn over faces and noses. They also do little good if they are just worn on your forehead. That’s where the man above, with the phone, seems to be wearing his mask.

[MASKS MUST COVER NOSES, TOO. IT’S INEFFECTIVE OTHERWISE].

In the reader photos provided to BocaNewsNow.com, one man has his nose exposed. That renders the mask useless. The second man is wearing his blue mask on his forehead. Again, this renders the mask ineffective. Humans breathe from both their nose and mouth.

The Palm Beach County Facial Covering Executive Order remains in effect until further notice. Phase 2, which starts Tuesday, brings no change to that order.

Fines for individuals can hit $100. The official fine schedule is below.
