PALM BEACH COUNTY PHASE 3 REOPENING
- Palm Beach County Emergency Order 2020-28 (Phase 3 Re-opening) rescinds all previous restrictions except social distancing, face masks use when unable to social distance, and sanitizing requirements. All businesses may now be open at 100%, including community pools and recreation facilities. However, CDC guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks, and sanitizing must continue to be maintained.
- With Phase 3 re-opening now in effect, it is extremely important that residents, employees and visitors continue to AVOID THE THREE C’s – CLOSED spaces with poor ventilation, CROWDED spaces with many people nearby and CLOSE-CONTACT settings. Also remember to wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands frequently.
MANDATORY FACE COVERINGS ORDER REMAIN IN EFFECT
- Recently approved Palm Beach County Emergency Order No. 2020-26 extended the Mandatory Face Covering directive through at least October 22, 2020.
- Masks or face coverings MUST be worn by all persons within the Town, while visiting or working in any businesses, establishment or residential buildings. This includes, but is not limited to, restaurants, retail establishments, hotels, grocery stores, gyms, pharmacies, indoor recreational facilities, houses of worship, government buildings, multifamily buildings, and vehicles for hire.
- Face coverings MUST also be worn by all persons in outdoor public places where social distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible.
- MASKS MUST BE WORN PROPERLY – Please ensure masks and other acceptable face coverings are worn completely over the NOSE and MOUTH when in the presence of others. When removing masks, only touch the strings or ear loops. Do not touch the actual face covering to avoid contaminating your hands. Masks should be washed or disposed after wearing.
- The types of masks that are acceptable, include cloth, surgical, dust, and N95 masks without vents. Masks with vents or exhalation valves are not acceptable, as they allow unfiltered exhaled air to escape.
