Maryland Emergency Management Agency Alert
Coronavirus COVID-19 Update - March 17th, 2020
Hello Fellow Marylanders, The Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is and has been fully activated in our State Emergency Operations Center and your local emergency management offices are activated too. As you know, we are working 24/7 with our federal, state, and local partners to get you the most updated and actionable information we can. This is an extremely fluid event and new guidelines are coming out daily.
Many of you are doing your part to keep your fellow neighbors safe and are only going into public when you absolutely need to - thank you for doing that and taking this public health crisis seriously. This action of "Social Distancing" or deliberately increasing the physical space between yourself and others to avoid spreading illness by staying at least six feet away from people. By practicing this powerful action, you are helping your community lessen its chance of catching the Coronavirus. We ask you to continue to participate in this effort. Please, only go out into public areas and spaces when you absolutely have to. Continue to wash your hands more frequently than you normally would. Also, avoid touching your face, wash your hands every time you come home from a public space, and continue to keep frequently touched hard surfaces like your cell phones, computers, remotes, table and counter tops, cleaned and disinfected. Finally, social distancing does NOT mean disconnecting. You are encouraged to keep in touch with your family and friends through phone calls and social media. Give your older family and friends a call if you can and check-in on them. They need your encouragement and support too.
Be taking these simple, but very effective steps, you are helping your family, friends, neighbors, and community stay healthy. We will get through this uncertain time, but we have to do it together. Please, continue to follow the Maryland Department of Health, the Maryland Department of Aging, Governor Larry Hogan, and us for the latest information and resources for your use.
Stay Safe and Stay Healthy - We will get through this TOGETHER!
