Baltimore County to join state in lifting mask order

TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County on Friday announced plans to align with the state to lift the order requiring face coverings in indoor establishments.

County Executive Johnny Olszewski issued the following statement:

“The CDC’s assurances that people who are vaccinated can safely resume nearly all activities is incredibly heartening. Collectively, we’ve all worked hard to get to this point, and I’m pleased to see the significant progress we’ve made in recent weeks.

“However, those who have not yet been vaccinated are still at risk from COVID-19. Vaccines are readily available to everyone who is eligible, and we encourage everyone to get one as soon as they can. It’s also important to remember that children under 12 are not yet able to receive a vaccine, leaving our youngest residents unprotected. We hope everyone will take appropriate precautions to keep them safe.”
