Prince Frederick, MD - March 13, 2020 - As a precautionary measure due to the Coronavirus the Calvert County Health Department will temporarily suspend approvals for mass gatherings or community events. The suspension does not apply to routine operations of businesses and nonprofit entities.

This situation is evolving and it is recommended for members of the public to assess the risk of exposure to the Coronavirus and other respiratory illnesses prior to attending large community events or mass gatherings. This is particularly important for anyone over the age of 60 or anyone with medical conditions that weaken their immune system. Due to the inherent design of many community events, it is not always possible to maintain proper social distancing and practice adequate, frequent cleaning of surfaces. The Department will notify the public and event holders when event approvals may resume.

If you have any questions regarding Coronavirus and your health, please contact your personal physician or nurse practitioner. If they are not able to address your questions, you can call the Calvert County Health Department at (410) 535-5400 x334 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.

 

The Environmental Health Division is tasked with protecting Calvert County against environmental hazards. Our goals in this function include:

  • Preventing environmental pollution from sewage disposal systems of residential, industrial, and commercial sources.
  • Promoting the public health of residents and visitors by permitting, testing, and certifying the potability of individual water supplies.
  • Protecting the public by ensuring all of the foods produced, stored, and sold are safe, sanitary, and meet regulatory requirements.
