Likely To Continue To, Or Through, Summer 2021
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County mask order has been extended until December 21st, when it will undoubtedly be extended, again.
Health officials say that the mere presence of a vaccine doesn’t mean any substantive changes should be expected anytime soon. In fact, the expectation is that the mask order in Palm Beach County will continue at least until the summer, if not through the summer. It will take at least that long for a sizable portion of the population to be vaccinated.
Under the order, face coverings remain a requirement in all public places, retail establishments, restaurants and more. The complete text of the order is below.
Remember: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has prohibited local municipalities from enforcing mask orders with fines, except for businesses. However, if you are seen not wearing a mask in a public place, you’ll more likely than not end up on this website — regardless of the fact that you’re risking not just your life but the lives of people you love and even those you don’t know.
