In fact, Palm Beach County Commissioner Hal Valeche tells Jen and Bill that the county’s positivity rate has been consistently below 5%. Valeche says he believes Palm Beach County has achieved herd immunity, meaning most of the residents have already been exposed to the virus. He says hospitalizations in the county for the coronavirus are also below 5%. It is his opinion that we would be safe to enter Phase 2 of reopening for Palm Beach County, but the rest of the board is being cautious and will put it of until after Labor Day, September 7. He says that is two weeks from today and he does not see any justification for keeping the county closed at this time.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Valeche-2.mp3During the board meeting yesterday, the decision to reopen Palm Beach County was put off until next week.
