Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-244 moving all of Florida’s 67 counties into Phase 3.
Executive Order 20-244 does the following:
Effective September 29, 2020 at 5pm, Palm Beach County leadership issued Executive Order 20-28 (Phase 3 Reopenings) to repeal and replace some of the prior Palm Beach County emergency orders imposing COVID-19 related restrictions on individuals, businesses and establishments, while making clear that certain restrictions are still in effect to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
All prior Palm Beach County emergency orders imposing COVID-19 related restrictions on individuals, businesses and/or establishments are repealed and replaced with Order 2020-28 except the following two orders, which are still in effect:
The requirements of Emergency Order 2020-012 are still in place and all individuals, businesses and establishment must use facials coverings in all businesses and establishments, and social distancing guidelines issued by the CDC shall be followed.
Palm Beach County’s facial covering mandate remains in place. Although the Governor’s order suspends the collection of fines and penalties enforced upon individuals, it does not preempt local governments from assessing fines or otherwise penalizing businesses that violate emergency orders including mask mandates. Palm Beach County has in the past, and will continue as long as the facial covering order is in place, to educate and assist with compliance before fines or penalties against businesses are levied.
