Frederick County To Follow Governor’s Orders Lifting Limits On Indoor & Outdoor Venues

But masks will still be required inside.








Frederick, Md (KM).   Frederick County will follow the Governor’s orders regarding capacity limits for  indoor and outdoor venues.  County Executive Jan Gardner made that announcement during her public information briefing Thursday morning.

In his news conference on Wednesday, Governor Larry Hogan announced that restaurants can resume normal operations on Saturday.

Gardner also reminded residents that they still need to wear masks while indoors, and restaurants are advised by the Maryland Department of Health  to keep indoor dining tables six feet apart.  Business are also advised to  continue practicing social distancing inside their establishments.

When it comes to large gatherings, Gardner said the  Frederick County Health Board of Health has ordered that a responsible party be designated for all gatherings of 100 or more people..  That person’s name and contact information  must be filed with the County Health Department at least a week prior to the event.

The Parks and Recreation Division still requires masks in shelters when there are more than 50 people present, and masks  are required for spectators in  bleachers and in stadiums.

Governor Hogan has said the mask requirement will be lifted when at least  70% of Maryland’s adults  have received their  first does of the COVID-19 vaccine.
