OCEAN CITY, Md. — Following Governor Hogan’s lifting of the Stay-At-Home order, the Town of Ocean City will be lifting lodging restrictions on short-term rentals effective Thursday at 5 p.m.

Ocean City is currently working with the Hotel Motel Restaurant Association and Chamber of Commerce to ensure they follow stage one of the Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery and Back to Business Pledge.

Ocean City is encouraging residents and visitors to follow health and safety guidelines, including physical distancing and gathering limits.

Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan said in part:

"Personal responsibility and individual comfort levels are incredibly important to exercise during each phase of recovery. Each and every one of us has an obligation to exercise personal responsibility to protect our families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors so that as a community we can keep Ocean City moving forward."
