Frederick City To End State Of Emergency And Fully Re-Open

Mayor O’Connor said COVID-19 metrics continue to improve.

Frederick, Md. (NS) – As COVID-19 metrics continue to improve for Frederick, Mayor Michael O’Connor has announced plans to fully re-open the city and end its state of emergency.

Beginning Tuesday, Frederick will reopen all of its buildings with face coverings optional.

Public meetings by the Mayor, Board of Aldermen, and all other boards and commissions will return to in-person beginning April 1.

Unlike before, these boards will have the option to announce a virtual meeting if the public is informed far enough in advance.

In a statement released on Monday, O’Connor said if COVID-19 metrics and community transmission continue to look favorable, he would lift the City’s state of emergency on April 15. Once the emergency is lifted, the extension on due dates for citations, licensures, permits and City bills will end after 30 days.
