COVID-19 Joint Information Center

JIC COVID-19

The Frederick County Government and its allied agencies involved in the COVID-19 response have come together to operate a Joint Information Center. The purpose of the Joint Information Center is to ensure consistent coordinated messaging across the participating agencies.

The media can contact the Joint Information Center (JIC) at 301-600-7662 or JIC@FrederickCountyMD.gov for all COVID-19 related inquiries. JIC staff are monitoring both and you will receive a response within one business day.
