(CNN)More than 100 people, mostly not wearing face masks, attended an indoor event held by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday -- and the hotel where it took place is now under investigation by Palm Beach County officials.

About 15 minutes before the event was scheduled to begin, the county was notified that many in the audience of about 100-150 people were not wearing facial coverings or masks, Palm Beach County Deputy Director of Public Affairs John Jamason told CNN in a statement.

The event was held at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport Hotel.

Jamason said the event was not coordinated by the county and it is up to businesses to enforce the mask mandate.

A Hilton Palm Beach Airport spokesperson said in an email to CNN that, in part, "We have been made aware of video that appears to show a group of individuals within close proximity of one another and not wearing masks.

The Palm Beach Code Enforcement and Compliance Team is investigating the incident and will determine if the hotel faces fines or penalties, Jamason said.
