Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Moving State To “Phase 3” Has No Impact On Mask Mandate
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The sudden and unexpected announcement that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis elevated all of Florida to “phase 3” has no impact on the mask mandate for ALL students and teachers in the Palm Beach County School District.
District officials, apparently preparing to counter the erroneous belief that “phase 3” means “no masks” just issued a strongly worded statement. We’ll make it simple: if you’re going to be inside a Palm Beach County School District building or facility, you MUST wear a facial covering.
Here’s the advisory:
The School District of Palm Beach County continues to require the use of facial coverings on District school buses, school campuses, and District offices until further notice.
The School District is not affected by the Governor’s Executive Order to move Florida to Phase 3 of the state’s COVID-19 response, and continues to follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other health agencies’ guidelines on facial coverings.
Schools have distributed washable, cloth facial covers to each student who has returned to campus for in-person instruction. Facial coverings are also available to District teachers and other employees. In the event that a student forgets their facial covering, a disposable one will be provided.
Students who do not follow the facial covering protocols will be educated on the importance of the use of facial coverings, and may be subject to disciplinary action as outlined in Policy 5.326- Student Protocols due to COVID-19.
