Face Masks Required

NOTICE: Face Mask or Facial Covering Required for Entry into Courthouses

In compliance with Administrative Order 12.510-12/2020.18, all persons entering any of the courthouses in Palm Beach County shall wear a mask or facial covering. Open-chin triangle bandannas; neck gaiters; face coverings with vents, valves or mesh; and face shields without masks underneath are insufficient. Additionally, all masks or facial coverings must fit snugly over the nose and mouth and be secured under the chin. Any person entering the courthouses without a mask or facial covering meeting these standards will be provided with a mask. Masks must also remain on inside the courtrooms unless directed otherwise by the presiding judge for the purposes of creating a clear record, identification, or other reason deemed necessary.

This requirement will remain in effect until further order of the Chief Judge.
