On June 15, 2021, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency in the State of Maryland. He also announced that all emergency mandates and restrictions will be terminated as of July 1. There will no longer be a statewide mask order in effect for any settings, including schools, camps, and child care facilities. These decisions are based on the data that Maryland has now surpassed 6.5 million vaccinations and the positivity rate is a record-low 0.82%.
Based on changes to state guidelines, the CAMOM Board has voted to also lift all mask requirements for upcoming CAMOM events. Masks are always welcome, and we continue to encourage mask wearing for the protection of our pregnant mothers and prematurely-born babies and children. We also encourage families to follow public health recommendations from the CDC for unvaccinated adults and children and in indoor settings. As we begin to select new venues, masking requirements will also be subject to the discretion of the venue policy.
We look forward to seeing your smiles again!
