The COVID-19 public health crisis is affecting every part of life in Talbot County. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. Your help is needed to keep our county open and safe for everyone. As the county proceeds through a state of recovery including distribution of the vaccine, the threat of the virus is not lessened so please continue to:

  • wear face masks in public,
  • put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household,
  • stay safe at home if you don’t have to travel away from home and avoid gatherings, and
  • cooperate with local contact tracers if one of them should call you.
