Pinellas County rescinds mask mandate

May 4, 2021 - Pinellas County has rescinded an ordinance requiring face coverings and certain Covid-19 safety protocols at businesses, following Gov. Ron DeSantis' executive order ending local Covid-19 restrictions. A Pinellas County order requiring safety plans requirements for large events is also rescinded, a news release from the county said. Private businesses and organizations in Pinellas may still require face coverings and/or any other safety protocols as part of their own business operation. The Pinellas County School Board is not affected by the governor’s order, and masking and social distancing protocols remain in effect in Pinellas County Schools through the end of the 2020-2021 school year. A May 11 meeting of the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners no longer will include the state of local emergency and public hearing on the face covering ordinance.
