– In response to Governor Hogan’s announcement on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, that Maryland will move from the Stay at Home Order to a Safer at Home Public Health Advisory, St. Mary’s County announces parallel actions.

Additionally, the Governor has authorized Stage One of recovery which includes the gradual reopening of retail, manufacturing, houses of worship and some personal services. St. Mary’s County Government is doing the same with the St. Mary’s County COVID-19 Pandemic Roadmap to Recovery.

Local businesses are encouraged to review the state guidelines and to take a ‘Back to Business’ pledge. As recovery begins, please remember to maintain physical distancing, keep gatherings to ten or less, wear face coverings and follow all safe health precautions.

Residents may access the  St. Mary’s County COVID19 Pandemic Roadmap to Recovery, the Maryland Strong Back to Business Pledge and the guidelines on our website at https://www.stmarysmd.com/covid-19/updates/.
