On Friday, January 7 Health Officer Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, finding it necessary for the medical containment of COVID-19, issued an Order for Public Safety which mandates all persons over the age of two shall wear a face covering in indoor public spaces, and in outdoor public spaces where physical distancing is not feasible. For more information and a list of exceptions included under this mandate, view the Order for Public Safety.

All Anne Arundel County Government buildings are open to members of the public. To minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19, all employees, visitors, and other individuals entering any county building will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of their stay in the building, regardless of vaccination status. For specific questions about operations, please contact the county department you will be visiting.

All individuals 5 and older are eligible to be vaccinated, and all individuals 12 and older are eligible to get a booster shot.
