    Both the Calvert County Health Department (effective Thursday, April 16) and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (effective Saturday, April 18) are requiring face coverings to be worn while shopping and in certain other circumstances. See below for details. These actions will protect the health and safety of our fellow citizens. Please read on for details.

    From The BayNet:

    Calvert County Requires Face Coverings to be Worn While Shopping

    And from the Governor's web site:

    "FACE COVERINGS ORDER: Governor Hogan announced an executive order which requires the wearing of face coverings when inside any retail establishments or when riding any form of public transportation in Maryland. The order also requires all retail locations to require staff to wear face coverings and requires those businesses to put appropriate social distancing measures in place. To give retailers time to make these adjustments, the order will go into effect Saturday, April 18 at 7 a.m. The CDC has issued detailed guidance and instructions regarding homemade cloth face coverings which can be found at coronavirus.maryland.gov."

     Read the Governor’s order.

    From the Calvert County Election Board:

    "The June 2nd primary will be conducted largely by mail. We will send each eligible, active voter a ballot. They do not need to apply for a ballot unless they want it sent to a different address than what is on file or if they want it electronically.

    We are encouraging voters to check their voter registration record online to ensure that their address is correct.

    The mail-in ballot return envelope will have pre-paid postage. We will also have a drop box available outside of our office in the parking lot. I expect to have it by May 21st but do not have a definitive date.

    Additionally we will have limited in-person voting on Election Day itself. This is for voters who need additional assistance or did not receive a ballot as well as for same day registration.

    There will be one vote center for Calvert County. It will be in the same building as our office, which is normally our early voting site (30 Duke St, Prince Frederick)."

    Read the proclamation that the Governor signed on April 10th.

    Dear members and friends,

    The Calvert County Health Department is asking us to limit our shopping trips to once every 5 days on an alphabetical schedule to help stop the spread of COVID-19. You can read the post here.  This is voluntary but suggested to cut down on crowding and waiting in line due to social distancing measures in the stores.

    Also, there is an app called Prepare Me Calvert which you can use to receive alerts on this and other topics. It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
