In anticipation of an announcement by Governor Larry Hogan about additional Phase 1 openings of activities and businesses, Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner and the mayors and burgesses of every municipality in Frederick County have agreed to coordinate how and when to implement any proposed changes to the current stay-at-home order. This includes the cities of Frederick and Brunswick, the towns of Burkittsville, Emmitsburg, Middletown, Mount Airy, Myersville, New Market, Thurmont, Walkersville, and Woodsboro, and the Village of Rosemont.
The mayors, burgesses and County Executive will need time to evaluate the options and capability to thoughtfully and effectively implement whatever the Governor proposes at his 5 p.m. press conference today. There is agreement that local health data will guide decision-making.
The general public and local businesses should be aware that implementation of any proposed changes will not be immediate. Further details will be announced at a later date as more information is available.
