After a long meeting last night by the Board of Health, it was decided that a mask mandate goes into effect as of 5pm today, December 31, 2021. This mask mandate is an attempt to help mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus. The regulation is posted on the Board of Health website, but we have outlined a shorter version below:
There have been no limit capacities as of yet, but they will be discussing this at a future meeting. In addition, the County Executive placed us in a State of Emergency as of 5pm today.
Our inspectors will be providing reminders, but enforcement was left unclear as of last night. If you need further clarifications, please contact the Board of Health at 301-600-1029. We have provided their website below for ease of finding any new information.
In addition, our offices are closed for the holiday. We will make every attempt to answer any emails or phone calls.
