July 1- End of Emergency Mandates & Face Covering Recommendation

Effective July 1, 2021 all emergency mandates and restrictions in Maryland will be terminated. There will no longer be any statewide mask order in effect for any settings, including schools, camps, and child care facilities.

All Marylanders should be aware that the federal order that face masks be worn by all people while on public transportation conveyances, including public and private school buses, and at transportation hubs, is still in effect. The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) strongly recommends, but does not require, that all individuals who are not fully vaccinated continue to wear face coverings in all indoor settings outside of their home and in outdoor settings when physical distancing cannot be maintained.  Each childcare facility, youth camp, local school system and authority may set their own policies regarding masks and face coverings.
