The Town is committed to adhering to the stringent guidelines necessary to help slow the spread of infection. The first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Queen Anne’s County was on March 21, 2020, with the second case being confirmed on March 25, 2020. With the rapid spread of COVID-19, we are asking Town residents and visitors to review the additional precautions the Town has taken to prevent the spread, which are outlined below, and ask that you continue to follow the Orders of President Trump and Maryland Governor Hogan.
Until further notice, the Town basketball court is closed. The Town park remains open for walking, running, dog walking, and relaxing. As in every other place, please practice proper hygiene & social distancing. Until further notice, there must be no more than 10 people in the areas of our park & fields. An excess of 10 people would violate Governor Larry Hogan’s Executive Order restricting mass gatherings.
Playground equipment should not be used. According to the National Institutes of Health, coronavirus can live on certain surfaces for up to three days. The Town cannot sanitize equipment nor can we enforce proper social distancing in our playgrounds.
If you or a member of your family feel sick, please stay home. If you or someone in your household has tested positive for the coronavirus, please stay home and encourage everyone in the household to stay home. If you are an older person, please stay home. If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition that can put you at increased risk please stay home.
If you recently traveled to or from an area with confirmed cases of COVID-19, please self-quarantine for a period of at least fourteen (14) days. If you have flown within the last two weeks, please self-quarantine for a period of at least fourteen (14) days.
