Since the implementation of the Public Safety Order, case rates and hospitalizations have peaked and they are now coming down.

Effective Tuesday, Feb. 22, at midnight, Montgomery County will terminate its mandate requiring masks or face coverings indoors in locations accessible to the public. Despite the mandate being lifted, businesses and other organizations can continue to require customers or visitors to wear a mask in their establishments. The County is strongly recommending that front-facing staff, who have not received their booster, and visitors in County Government offices and facilities continue to wear a mask/face covering in publicly accessible areas. The lifting of the indoor mandate from the Board of Health does not impact mask requirements in Montgomery County Public Schools.
