Additional Business Openings Announced


At a press conference on Wednesday, Governor Larry Hogan announced when additional businesses may reopen over the next two weeks.

The Governor has allowed a flexible, more conservative community-based implementation approach but it is the intent of the Board of County Commissioners of Garrett County and the Health Officer to continue to directly follow the Governor's directives.

Beginning on Friday, June 12 at 5 p.m. the following may reopen at 50% capacity with appropriate distancing and while following strict public health requirements:


  • Indoor Dining

  • Outdoor Amusements

  • Rides, miniature golf, go-karts, public pools

  • Conference and Event Venues

The current Order keeps in place the requirement for the use of face coverings in retail and personal care businesses. It also strongly recommends continuing to follow the most current guidance from CDC and MDH regarding social distancing, including avoiding large gatherings and crowded places. However, the order restricting gatherings of more than 10 persons has been lifted.

Beginning on Friday, June 19 at 5 p.m. the following may reopen at 50% capacity with appropriate distancing and while following strict public health requirements:
