COUNTRY CLUB KITCHEN STAFF SEEN NOT WEARING FACIAL COVERINGS.
UPDATE 10:41 AM Friday, September 11, 2020: Despite our messages left at Polo Club, we have yet to receive an official response. We have received a piecemeal response from residents who claim these photos are old, inaccurate or fake. We have reviewed date stamps on the photos and can confirm that they were taken after the executive order went into effect. If Polo Club provides us with a statement — now nearly 20 hours after our first request — we will publish it.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Photos obtained by BocaNewsNow.com show several kitchen workers at Boca Raton’s Polo Club working without facial coverings. This is a direct violation of Palm Beach County’s Executive Order. It is also non-compliant with CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. A date stamp verifies the photos were taken after the mask order went into effect.
Polo Club is a high-end country club in Boca Raton known for its hosting and catering of major events.
There was no immediate response from Polo Club’s Operations Director Liliana Hang.
Concerned residents have been contacting BocaNewsNow.com for weeks but with no proof. Now photos have been provided showing several workers wearing no masks or wearing masks incorrectly. Another photo shows a group of unmasked employees huddled together in violation of CDC’s social distancing guidelines.
Polo Club is not currently on the Palm Beach County COVID Education and Compliance Team’s dashboard of locations either visited or cited for COVID-19 compliance issues. It was not immediately clear if anyone filed a complaint with Palm Beach County.
We will update when and if we receive a response from Polo Club management. We have learned at least 3 restaurants in Polo Club are now serving guests.
