Read this Good News! Have you gotten your vaccination yet? If not, help us reach 70% statewide so we can lift the indoor mask mandate. Call us for an appointment 443-523-1920. It's safe, its effective, its free.As a direct result of our incredibly fast pace of vaccinations and because of the subsequent declines in hospitalizations, positivity rate, transmission rate, and case rates, today we are able to take additional actions on our return to normalcy.Effective this Saturday, May 15, we are lifting all restrictions on all outdoor entertainment, art, and sports venues, including all ticketed events as well as all indoor entertainment venues, conventions, and other businesses. All restrictions will also be lifted on both indoor and outdoor dining.As of Saturday, every business in Maryland will be able to open at 100% with no restrictions. The only thing that will remain in place for the time being is the indoor mask requirement, which we will be able to lift as soon as we reach the federal goal of 70% of adults receiving at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.Our plan is to get everything back to normal by Memorial Day. But once again, the fastest way to get rid of our masks and to put this pandemic behind us once and for all is for every single eligible Marylander to get vaccinated as quickly as possible.Read the full news release: governor.maryland.gov/2021/05/12/governor-hogan-lifts-capacity-limits-on-indoor-and-outdoor-venue... ...
