MARYLAND STRONG - RECOVERY STAGE 3
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, 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 large gatherings, and
- cooperate with our contact tracers if one of them should call you.
As per Governor Hogan’s Executive Order, Maryland is in Stage 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery with a gradual reopening of some business and facilities that started Friday, September 4, 2020 at 5pm.
