Town of Palm Beach reinstates mask mandate for town-owned buildings

CORRECTION: This article originally stated the mask mandate was for the entire town rather than inside town-owned buildings because of a typo posted by the Town of Palm Beach on its website. The correct mask mandate is for inside town-owned buildings.

The Town of Palm Beach reinstated its mask policy for all individuals Monday.
