BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you are vaccinated against COVID-19, you are no longer required to wear a mask in most Palm Beach County Government buildings, including the Clerk’s office. If you are not vaccinated, masking is still required. Law enforcement has the authority to arrest anyone who isn’t complying with current rules and regulations.
From Palm Beach County, effective immediately:
“Until further notice, based on the most recent recommendations of the CDC citing individuals who are fully vaccinated may go without a mask inside buildings and in consultation with the Director of the Florida Department of Health for Palm Beach County, effective Tuesday, May 18, 2021, all fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask inside County buildings.
Fully vaccinated equates to a person receiving both shots of Moderna or Pfizer and beyond the 14 day incubation period after the second shot or the J&J one shot vaccine beyond the 14 day incubation period. However, the CDC further recommends that individuals who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear masks indoors and in large crowds. Masks will continue to be worn on all public transit (buses, planes and trains) transportation hubs in accordance with federal policy and all other exemptions per the CDC.
County Property includes all County-owned and County-leased buildings where Palm Beach County’s offices, divisions, and departments conduct business. Constitutional Offices that operate in County Buildings should be contacted regarding their individual mask policy. Law Enforcement is authorized to issue a trespass warning and remove any individuals not in compliance with this policy.”
From The Clerk Of Courts:
The Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller will no longer require fully vaccinated people to wear face coverings in our offices, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and new protocols from Palm Beach County regarding face coverings in County-owned buildings.
This change applies to Clerk customers and employees, and is effective Wednesday, May 19.
Face coverings are still required in occupancy restricted areas such as courtrooms and the jury assembly room. Anyone reporting for jury duty will have to wear a face covering while in the jury room.
