This in from the Palm Beach Civic Association…
Palm Beach TV has learned that 26 new Covid-19 cases have been reported in Palm Beach and two new deaths in the last week.
It is a development that Council President Maggie Zeidman is calling ‘alarming’ and the most significant surge in cases since the crisis began in March.
The report comes in as the Town’s population is swelling to peak seasonal numbers and as town leaders are urging residents and guests to avoid close contact with others and to wear masks.
