Rockville Responds to Governor’s Order

Rockville, Maryland, March 21 — Gov. Larry Hogan has issued an executive order prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people. Following state and federal directives intended to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, COVID-19, Rockville events, classes, programs, rentals and activities are canceled through April 30.  

This schedule adjustment and closure applies to community centers, the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center, Rockville Senior Center, Croydon Creek Nature Center, Glenview Mansion, F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre and Montrose Discovery Preschool.  

Rockville’s parks are open. However, while social distancing guidelines are in effect, the city does not recommend that children use play equipment, as COVID-19 can remain viable on surfaces for hours or longer.  

City Hall will be closed to the public through Friday, March 27. Essential city services will continue throughout this period, including regular trash and recycling collection, water treatment, street repair, water and sewer system repair, building code and fire inspections, animal control, traffic signal repair, and police patrols and emergency response. 

Employees will conduct as much of the city’s operations as possible while maintaining recommended social distancing guidelines to ensure the health and safety of city staff and the community.
