Montgomery County Council Delays Vote on Vaccine Mandate for Bars, Restaurants, Gyms, and Other Businesses

by Patrick Herron

The Montgomery County Council is now tentatively scheduled to vote next week on the proposed “vaccine passport” for businesses.

At today’s meeting, the Council held a public hearing and discussion on the resolution that would require restaurants, bars, fitness centers and other establishments to require customers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 before entering indoor areas, as proposed by County Executive Elrich.

The Council heard public testimony from residents and several business owners, as well as County health officials.

Before recess, Council President Gabe Albornoz announced there will now be another public hearing next Tuesday, saying that the Council wants to be “methodical and thoughtful about this process because obviously this order has a lot of consequence to it.”

The Council is now adjourned for recess and will be back in session today at 1:45pm.
