Montgomery County won't reopen yet, "County will not provide an arbitrary date for reopening"

Updated: May 14, 2020

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles announced today they are joining other large jurisdictions in Maryland and the National Capital Region (NCR) in continuing a stay-at-home order until COVID-19 data show it is safe to move toward a relaxation of the order.

As of this morning, Montgomery County has 7,548 reported cases of COVID-19 and 397 deaths, the highest number of deaths in the state. The death count is still rising in Montgomery County, as is the daily total of new COVID-19 cases.  


            While the County will not provide an arbitrary date for reopening, the decision will be based on science and local guidance from public health officials. There are five key metrics that need to be met before reopening and a relaxation of restrictions can occur:


  1. A sustained decrease during a 14-day period of new cases in an environment of increased testing

  2. A sustained decrease in the COVID-19 related hospitalization rate  

  3. A sustained decrease in the percentage of COVID-19 related ICU beds in use

  4. A sustained decrease in the number of COVID-19 related daily deaths

  5. A sustained decrease in the number of COVID-19 related patients going to County emergency rooms



            While continuing to monitor the number of cases and other metrics, County officials are asking residents to continue to be vigilant in practicing preventive measures:

  • Only go out for essential travel and permitted exercise

  • Practice physical distancing of at least six feet

  • Do not congregate in groups of more than 10 people

  • Wear a face covering when going out in public

  • Wash hands frequently

While @GovLarryHogan

has announced he is lifting the Stay at Home Order and moving into Phase 1 of recovery, here in @MontgomeryCoMD , the science shows we are not ready to take that step. We are in a densely-populated environment with nearly 400 #COVID19 deaths.
