FREDERICK, Md. — On Tuesday, The Frederick County Board of Health convened to discuss the department's COVID-19 response operations and decided to rescind Regulation 01-2021.

Regulation 01-2021 was approved by the Board of Health on March 23, 2021 and included a requirement for certain public gatherings of 100 or more persons to provide to the Health Department information about the gathering.

This requirement is no longer in place.

“This change is possible thanks to our improving metrics, fewer cases and hospitalizations, and increasing vaccinations,” says Frederick County Health Officer Dr. Barbara Brookmyer. “We are excited by the progress being made in Frederick County as we’re working hard to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in or community.”
