County Executive Pittman Announces Anne Arundel County Will Follow Removal of State's Restrictions on Event Venues, Indoor and Outdoor Dining
Annapolis, MD (May 12, 2021) - County Executive Steuart Pittman announced today that Anne Arundel County will follow the State’s removal of restrictions on indoor and outdoor event venues and on indoor and outdoor dining at bars and restaurants. The changes will take effect on Saturday, May 15.
"After consulting with our Health Officer, we have decided to follow the State's lead," County Executive Steuart Pittman said. "We believe that our low case rates will continue through the summer, but the only effective way to prevent a fall surge in cases will be a summer surge in vaccinations."
The County is accepting vaccination appointments for 12 to 15 year olds, effective immediately. The FDA extended the federal emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and the CDC has recommended it for use for 12 to 15 year olds.
