Elrich said he will continue to wear a face covering in certain situations.

“While masks will no longer be required in public indoor spaces, in general I will continue to wear masks in public indoor spaces because of mask wearing, as well as vaccinations and increased population growth. Adequate reinforcement, are the best ways to reduce the risk of transmitting and receiving COVID-19,” he said.

Montgomery County has “significant” transmission, according to county data, with an average of 72.6 cases per 100,000 residents over the past seven days. But the seven-day average of positive tests, 2.63%, is considered “low transmission,” the county said.

The County will continue to monitor health metrics and may reinstate missions and other processes in the event of another surge.

Businesses and organizations that can still require masks can still request masks in their premises.

The county is “highly recommending” wearing masks for employees who are not receiving boosters and visitors in government buildings and facilities.

Masking will continue in Montgomery County Public Schools.

“In consultation with our stellar public health team, we have determined that wearing a mask indoors is not mandatory at this time because Montgomery County’s immunization rate is one in best rates in the country and low case, hospitalization and community transmission rates,” said Council President Gabe Albornoz, who chairs the council’s Health and Human Services Committee.
