BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation inspected the food service departments at Polo Club the day after ran several photos of workers not wearing masks. The photos were taken after the Palm Beach County executive order requiring mask use went into effect. The photos were not taken by a “disgruntled former employee” as some have claimed.

Security at Polo Club alerted that health inspectors were on property shortly after they cleared the gates Friday morning.

While no restaurant was cited Friday for significant issues, Polo Club did receive what’s known as a “high priority violation” for — of all things — using too much sanitizer. Here’s the official language:

“High Priority – Wiping cloth sanitizer solution exceeds the maximum concentration allowed. At production kitchen, sanitizer 400+ ppm quaternary. Solution corrected to 200ppm quaternary. **Corrected On-Site**

The “Terrace Patio” was also cited for an ice issue.

“Intermediate – Ice chute soiled/build up of mold-like substance/slime. In production kitchen.”

We note there were no mask violations recorded by DBPR during their visit, but we also note that we have learned management strictly reinforced masking policies and procedures Friday following our reporting, and before inspectors arrived.
