COVID-19 Prevention Measures

AA County Health Department recommends the following for gatherings scheduled through the end of April:

  • Postpone or cancel ALL public gathering of more than 250 people per the Governor of the State of Maryland’s order on March 12, 2020
  • Postpone or cancel public gatherings that meet ANY of the following criteria
    • Are targeted toward or comprised of significant numbers of high-risk individuals (elderly who are 60+, chronic illness, homeless)
    • Cannot provide at least 6 feet of space between attendees
    • Offer alternative methods of meeting the gathering’s goals (e.g. live streaming)
    • Are not time sensitive
  • For public gatherings that do go forward we strongly recommend that you meet ALL these criteria:
    • Provide at least 6 feet of space between attendees.
    • Make handwashing stations (with soap and water) and/or hand sanitizer readily available, especially in food consumption areas.
    • Utilize signage that promotes handwashing.
    • Consider live streaming or recording of events so they are available for viewing for those who can’t/shouldn’t attend in person.
    • Encourage all participants who are sick (cough, shortness of breath, or fever) not to attend.
    • Encourage participants to cover their coughs and sneezes and to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth. 
    • Clean frequently touched surfaces.  
    • Develop flexible refund policies and re-ticketing options. 

Other recent steps the county has taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 include:

  • The Department of Aging announced today that all senior activity centers will be closed, effective Friday, March 13. Nutrition Program meals will continue through Monday, March 16 and then transition to take home meals.
  • The Department of Recreation and Parks announced today that all indoor recreational programs are postponed. County parks will remain open.
