BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Saturday afternoon takeout visitor at Biergarten in Boca Raton (309 Via De Palmas) was astonished by what he or she saw when inside the restaurant.
A group of people, some ironically having just taken part in a funeral, were packed into the restaurant without masks. There was no social distancing.
While individuals still can not be fined or cited for mask violations in Florida due to an executive order from Gov. Ron DeSantis, restaurants certainly can.
Whether Palm Beach County’s COVID Education and Compliance Team will take action is unclear. The photos — and additional evidence obtained by BocaNewsNow.com — do suggest the violations are verifiable and that restaurant personnel looked on as patrons violated rules and guidelines.
If you see violations, contact the CECT at 561-24-COVID. Please also let us know by using the form, below. If you are reading in an app and the form does not appear, just click here.
427 people are hospitalized for COVID-19 in Palm Beach County as of 9:16 a.m. Sunday.
