Caroline County Roadmap to Recovery

Updated: May 15

Governor Hogan announced Wednesday afternoon that Maryland will begin the first phase of reopening the State effective May 15th at 5:00 p.m. The Stay-at-Home order will be lifted and replaced with a “Safer at Home” advisory. Retail stores and some personal services will reopen with limits on capacity and strong safety precautions. Houses of Worship can resume services with safety measure; outdoor services are strongly encouraged. And, we must continue to practice physical distancing and wear masks in public areas.

What does this mean for Caroline County?

It is critical that all residents continue to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, staying at home as much as you can, wearing face masks when out and washing your hands frequently. If you develop any warning signs of COVID-19 – trouble breathing/shortness of breath; pain or pressure in the chest; loss of smell or taste or smell; cough; fever or shaking chills; please seek medical attention immediately
