POLO CLUB BOCA RATON: NO MASKS ON KITCHEN STAFF

NO MASK POLO CLUB

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.

  1. Wow. Our children sit in school for hours with their masks on and these ADULTS that are preparing food think they don’t need to?? Garbage. They should shut this down.

  2. These are old photos! One of the guys pictured doesn’t work there now. You should do your research!!

    We have confirmed that the photos were taken well after the mask order went into effect.

  3. These are old photos as one of the employees is bio longer here. Shame on you for posting fake news! The Polo Club is dedicated to keeping the members safe!

    Ed. Note: Arlene, date stamp shows photos taken after executive order went into effect. Not fake. We hope you and your family remain healthy.

  4. What is glaringly missing from a “new” article is that with over 1700 homes in the Polo Club, there are NO COVID-19 CASES within.

    I personally have never seen any staff not wearing masks, and would not hesitate to inform someone if it was improperly worn, but this type of reporting is exactly why this country is so polarized. Media doesn’t report FACTS that don’t sell!

    ED NOTE: What’s glaringly missing from your uneducated comment is that 436 people have tested positive for COVID in your zip code. As for Polo Club specifically, are you suggesting that you have access to the medical record of everyone there? Of course you do not. We also believe you are completely wrong. We suggest leaving your unsubstantiated comments in your head.
