In a press release today, Montgomery County Officials wrote out guidelines that the County recommends residents to follow during the upcoming holidays.
“We understand that everyone is growing weary of the pandemic and the associated restrictions, but we have worked hard as a community to address COVID-19 and we need to continue to be vigilant in order to keep our family, friends and others safe,” said County Executive Marc Elrich.
Officials asked residents to reconsider traveling this holiday season and they strongly recommended families to not hold large gatherings. If they do, gatherings should be outside when possible. The press release advised attendees to wear masks and social distance. Montgomery County officials encouraged hosts to invite small numbers of people and guests who live in the same area in order to limit the spread of coronavirus.
The press release also reminded residents that Montgomery County hosts free coronavirus testing sites. It’s free and it doesn’t require a doctor’s order.
