(Annapolis, MD) — Anne Arundel County’s mask mandate is staying in place. The County Council voted against a bill that would have extended the seven-day mandate enacted by County Executive Steuart Pittman that ended today. However, the county’s health officer later issued a public safety order that extends the mandate until the end of the month. Under the order, face coverings are required for anyone older than two in county indoor public spaces and outdoor spaces where physical distancing isn’t possible.
