Face masks and coverings will no longer be required for vaccinated people inside government buildings in Palm Beach County.
The mask mandate was updated on Tuesday to reflect the most recent guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control.
According to those guidelines, those who have received either the Moderna, Pfizer or the Johnson & Johnson and are beyond the 14-day incubation period are considered fully vaccinated and will no longer be required to wear the covering inside government buildings.
Government buildings are defined as buildings county-owned and county-leased buildings where Palm Beach County’s offices, divisions and departments conduct business.
Vaccinated people and those who are not may still be required to wear facial coverings inside buildings and businesses that are privately owned.
The CDC also recommends that those who are not vaccinated, continue to wear masks indoors and in large crowds.
