Safety & Vaccine Resources
The state has removed its statewide mask mandate, aligning with the new CDC guidance. In alignment with this CDC guidance, face coverings will still be required on public transportation, and in schools, child care and health care settings. The Maryland Department of Health has issued a public health advisory strongly recommending that all non-vaccinated individuals over the age of 2 years continue to wear face coverings in all indoor settings and in outdoor settings where physical distancing cannot be maintained. Private businesses and workplaces are free to put in place their own policies or guidance. Local jurisdictions are free to use their own emergency powers on these matters.
