Governor Hogan has proceeded to ease restrictions dealing with the COVID -19 State of Emergency, on a statewide basis but has reserved the right for local jurisdictions to modify his actions, if circumstances warrant.
In Garrett County we have utilized the Governor's guidance and have, to this point, fared better than most jurisdictions in the State. It is the intent of the Board of County Commissioners of Garrett County to continue to follow the Governor's directives.
As a result, until or unless the Health Officer for Garrett County directs otherwise, Garrett County will proceed with openings in accordance with Governor Hogan's present and future directives.
As the Governor announces phased openings or, as he eases restrictions related to the COVID -19 State of Emergency, those actions will apply in Garrett County unless the Garrett County Health Officer directs otherwise.
