Effective Friday, May 28, 2021: Issuance of alcohol permits and significantly reduced capacity limits at park shelters.
Important Reminders: Do not come to any City of Rockville property if you are sick or came into to contact with someone with any COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, or are otherwise instructed to remain at home.
Following the latest federal, state and county guidance, employees of and visitors to most City of Rockville facilities who have received full COVID-19 vaccinations will no longer be required to wear masks.

Regardless of vaccination status, city staff and students will still wear face coverings at the Montrose Discovery Preschool. Masks and face coverings will still need to be worn by staff and riders on Rockville Senior Center buses, or by staff and participants in summer camps and youth recreation programs.
