Closures in St. Michaels

In a recent press conference this morning, Gov. Larry Hogan ordered the shutdown of all bars, restaurants, movie theaters and gyms in Maryland, effective at 5 p.m., to slow the spread of the coronavirus. While closing restaurants, Hogan’s order would allow drive-thru, carryout and food delivery service to continue. Please check with local restaurants to see if carry-out is an option. We encourage support of local businesses whenever possible.

With Maryland under a state of emergency, Governor Hogan had previously prohibited large gatherings and events of more than 250 people. That was in keeping with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. But the CDC has since recommended that events with 50 or more people be canceled or postponed. Governor Hogan ordered Maryland to follow suit. The order limiting gatherings to 50 people applies to social, community, religious and recreational or sports activities. Then limited to groups of 10.

Since then the Governor has issued a Stay at Home Order. Please stay at home as much as possible and only leave home if you work in an essential service, or for food, necessary services and supplies, prescriptions and medical care.

Grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, gas stations and other essential services can remain open.
