REGULATIONS FOR BEACHES
- Per Palm Beach County Order No. 6, please be reminded that all public, municipal, and private beaches are open only from sunrise to sunset, with certain limitations.
- Beachgoers must follow CDC guidelines by limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people, while distancing themselves from other parties by more than 6 feet. Masks are required when 6 feet of social distancing cannot be achieved.
MANDATORY FACE COVERINGS ORDER REMAIN IN EFFECT
- Palm Beach County approved Emergency Order Number 20-20 REQUIRES masks or face coverings to be worn by all persons 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.
- 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.
- 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.
WORKING TOGETHER TO KEEP THE INFECTION RATE DOWN
- With Step 1, Phase 2 now in effect, it is extremely important that residents continue to AVOID THE THREE C’s – CLOSED spaces with poor ventilation, CROWDED spaces with many people nearby and CLOSE-CONTACT settings such as close-range conversations. Also remember to wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands frequently.
