More Than 6,000 Complaints Filed Against Alleged Business Violators. Fines Up To $15,000.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — With Phase 2 now underway in Palm Beach County, there is significant concern that businesses will not follow the very strict COVID-19 rules and regulations that remain in place, whether intentionally or unintentionally. If you see businesses that are not adhering to social distancing, facial covering or other rules mandated by Palm Beach County or Florida executive order, the Palm Beach County Community Education and Compliance Team wants to know.
The CECT will first attempt to “educate” the business about how it is supposed to operate with COVID-19 rules and restrictions. If the business still refuses to comply, fines up to $15,000 can be assessed. There are several businesses now facing these significant fines.
Use this information to contact the CECT:
