This morning, County Executive, Steuart Pittman, announced tighter coronavirus restrictions to be put into effect this month in Anne Arundel County. These restrictions are mainly focused on indoor dining and youth sports in the county.
Pittman’s orders included:
- On Nov. 13, social gatherings will be limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.
- On Nov. 16, all youth sports will be suspended until further notice.
- On Nov. 20, all bars and restaurants must operate at 25% capacity.
The county executive also expressed his concerns about the upcoming holiday seasons. With some of the highest recorded cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, Pittman urges families to gather over Zoom for the upcoming holidays or gather outside. If numbers continue to grow at the rate we are at now, restrictions will become tighter and Maryland could go back to Phase 1.
Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan, also held a press conference today announcing “tens of millions in state funding to further bolster the emergency response to to coronavirus.”
“The $70 million of new investments I’m announcing today will help us to protect the health and safety of more Marylanders,” Hogan said. “As we renew and redouble our efforts to flatten the curve once again, we’re also committed to doing everything we can to help struggling Maryland families and small businesses who are desperately in need of additional and immediate relief.”
