With the exception of Palm Beach County Emergency Orders Nos. 2020-012 (facial coverings) and 2020-017 (enforcement), as extended and as may be amended, all prior Palm Beach County emergency orders imposing COVID-19 related restrictions on individuals, businesses, and/or establishments are hereby repealed and replaced with the instant Order.
On September 1, 2020, the County Administrator provided the Board of County Commissioners this Incremental Phase 2 Re-opening Plan to be submitted to Governor DeSantis with a request to move Palm Beach County to an incremental Phase 2 re-opening. It is anticipated that movement would occur after Labor Day weekend, in a step-by-step fashion as outlined below, consistent with Governor DeSantis’ direction and authorization.
The schedule below is approximate and assumes that local health metrics as outlined in the COVID-19 Phased Restart (CPR) Program continue to move in a desirable direction, and that resurgence is not a factor. Additionally, the schedule below is subject to approval by the Board of County Commissioners and Governor DeSantis.
The schedule and associated strategies outlined in this plan are based on Florida Department of Health (FDoH) and CDC guidelines and recommendations based on growing evidence that the more a person interacts with others in an enclosed and crowded area and the longer that
interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread . The strategies listed herein work to either limit indoor capacity, reduce opportunities for close contact, and/or decrease the amount of prolonged periods (>15 minutes) of interaction with others. Limiting close face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of the disease.
