City Hall to Reopen Monday, March 28 With Access via All Entrances
Rockville, Maryland, March 7 – Face coverings will be optional for city employees and visitors to all City of Rockville facilities beginning Tuesday, March 8.
City Manager Rob DiSpirito announced the change Monday, citing Montgomery County’s “low” COVID-19 community level, as defined by a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tool that considers daily case count and hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area.
“The City will continue to monitor changes in public health requirements and recommendations and may need to adjust our face-covering requirements as recommendations change from the CDC, Maryland Department of Health, and for certain programs licensed by the Maryland State Department of Education,” DiSpirito said.
Visitors will now be able to use all publicly accessible entrances and exits at City Hall when it reopens Monday, March 28.
The Mayor and Council will continue to hold hybrid meetings, which the public is welcome to attend virtually, until further notice. These meetings can be viewed on-demand or live streamed at www.rockvillemd.gov/rockville11, and can be watched on Rockville 11 on Comcast and Verizon cable channel 11.
Rockville mandates vaccinations and booster shots for all city employees and provides frequent COVID testing opportunities.
Information about free testing and vaccinations can be found on Montgomery County’s COVID-19 information portal at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/covid19.
City Hall has been closed since March 14, 2020, however, city services have been available virtually, with city employees working in-person and, when possible, teleworking, throughout the pandemic. Community centers, the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center, Rockville Civic Center Park, and the Rockville Senior Center are open for in-person use.
