    From the League of Women Voters:

    "Dear Members and Supporters of the League of Women Voters,

    We have learned from the US Census Bureau that the following areas of Calvert County have a historic low self-reported rate for the Census:

    Solomons

    Lusby

    Barstow

    North Beach

    Chesapeake Beach

    Since the US Census Bureau does not send invitations to take part in the census nor mail paper census applications to post office boxes, this may, in part, explain the low rate of response.

    We strongly urge you to encourage everyone you know, particularly those in the areas listed above, to participate in the 2020 Census.  Federal funding and representation in Congress is determined by the Census, and Calvert County needs this information to make informed decisions about our futures.

    Thank you again for your support.

    Voter Services Committee

    League of Women Voters of Calvert County"

    From Congressman Steny Hoyer April 29, 2020:

    A MESSAGE FROM CONGRESSMAN STENY H. HOYER    

    I know that many Marylanders are experiencing severe financial hardship during the coronavirus pandemic. My thoughts continue to be with you and families around the state during this challenging time. 

    The Maryland Department of Labor's Division of Unemployment Insurance recently launched a comprehensive website to allow Marylanders to virtually file for unemployment benefits 24/7. Click here to visit the website and file your claim. Due to the high volume of individuals using the system, the Division of Unemployment Insurance has instituted a virtual waiting queue. 

    When you enter the system you will receive an estimated wait time and can sign-up to receive an email when it is your turn to access the portal. To alleviate some of the congestion, only individuals who are filing weekly claim certifications will be able to file on Sundays and Mondays. Individuals can file new claims Tuesdays through Saturdays.

    I know that many have been frustrated by the long wait times to make a claim, and I share their concerns. I have been in contact with the Department of Labor about this issue, and employees are working quickly to get through the claims in a timely manner. Due to this public health crisis, all deadlines have been removed for claimants to provide additional information or deliver supporting documentation. No matter when you file, Marylanders become eligible for benefits starting the day after they separated from employment. Click here for more information about the unemployment insurance claim process

    My staff and I are working around the clock to assist Fifth District residents during this public health crisis. If you need assistance, please visit my website at https://hoyer.house.gov/ or call one of my district offices. If you live in Prince George's, Anne Arundel, or Calvert Counties, please call (301) 474-0119. If you live in Charles or St. Mary's Counties, please call (301) 843-1577. 

    As always, I encourage all Fifth District residents to continue to share their concerns and insights with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.

     

    Sincerely Yours, 

    Steny H. Hoyer

    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.
