BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School District is transmitting a robocall to 180,000 students and families reminding them that masks are still mandatory in all Palm Beach County School District buildings.

The urgent robocall comes as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Monday that he is invalidating all emergency COVID-19 orders that are in place at the local level. COVID, according to DeSantis, is over.

But Palm Beach County School District officials say that they never issued an emergency order. Instead, the school district school board set a rule — something the board has authorization to do. That rule remains in effect until further notice.

All students, teachers, parents or employees entering a Palm Beach County School District building are still required to wear a facial covering over their nose and mouth. Failure to do so can result in that person being ordered from the building.

We remind anyone attempting to test the rule: trespass is still actionable, and the school district and declare a mask violator to be trespassing.
