This is not true. I live in south Florida and masks are required whenever you are outside and cannot maintain social distancing. The order for Palm Beach was extended to 1/20/21
:Per Palm Beach County Emergency Order 12 , facial coverings are required in public spaces, including any outdoor areas that are open and regularly accessible, where social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines is not possible or not being practiced. Individuals are not required to wear facial coverings when actively engaging in exercise and maintaining social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines."
Florida is a big state and each county, city and individual parks/establishments can have stricter regulations. One park may allow you to walk without a mask and others will not. In Broward County, south of Palm Beach county, we have greater restrictions. Recreational sports have started, but only the participants are allowed to be there. They limit you to groups of 10, even outdoors, at the beach, etc. You are required to wear a mask at all times at the gym, even when exercising. You must wear it in a restaurant unless you are actively eating or drinking. No more than 6 unrelated people at a table, max of 10 total. The tables must be 6’ apart. On premise dining is closed from midnight to 5 am. In my condo, I must wear it at all times in all public spaces. I am supposed to wear it when I walk down the hall to throw out my trash.
Other parts of the state are less restrictive. Also remember, the population is much different up north and Ocala is more rural than Wellington. Palm Beach county has almost 1.5 million residents. Marion County (Ocala), has 365,000. Ocala mask mandate dated 10/20/20 was extended for 60 days, I do not know if it extended again.
