Indoor Mask Mandate in Montgomery County Extended Until February 21

by Patrick Herron

Today the Montgomery County Council introduced, held a public hearing, and voted on a Second Amended Board of Health Regulation to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 and Extend Indoor Masking Guidance in Montgomery County.

The Council voted unanimously for the new public health order, which will keep the indoor mask mandate in place until February 21.

The current Board of Health regulation, which took effect on January 5, continued indoor masking requirements at any location accessible to the public in Montgomery County until at least January 31 11:59 p.m.

The Board of health must continue to meet every  two weeks to review data to determine if the indoor mask mandate will continue. Benchmarks will remain in place and used as a discussion point during these meetings.

The new mandate will terminate without further action by the Board of Health at 11:59pm on February 21.

We will post a copy of the updated Board of Health Regulation when it is released.

From Montgomery County:
