  1. Already been dining out in Frederick for months now where they have been able to safely maintain 50% indoor dining complying with state guidelines. I sincerely feel bad for businesses in Montgomery County that have had to deal with this tyrant Elrich but I will continue to take my money to neighboring counties and states. I am curious why there is not a recall petition to get rid of this dictator like they are doing in California. MoCo should have opened inside dining at least when DC did. What’s the point of being the lone holdout if people are just going to go to neighboring counties. All it accomplishes is further decimating locally owned small businesses.
