Palm Beach County's latest Emergency Order allows the county to enter Phase 3 of its reopening plan.
Palm Beach County has issued Emergency Order 2020-028, which took effect at 5:00 P.M. on September 29. On September 25, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-244, which moved all of Florida’s counties into Phase 3. EO 2020-028 repeals and replaces many of the prior PBC emergency orders that restricted businesses, individuals and establishment. Certain orders, however, do remain in place:
- Facial covering orders are still in effect.
- Social distancing guidelines as issued by the CDC must still be met.
- Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols, such as the guidelines issued by the CDC, must still be followed.
