Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in accordance with the continued direction of the Governor banning large gatherings, Winchester Hall remains closed to the public. Council President MC Keegan-Ayer, in consultation with Vice President Blue, legal staff and the Council’s Chief of Staff, has taken the precaution of postponing all County Council meetings until at least April 7th.
In addition, all highly visible and closely followed agenda items which were previously scheduled have been postponed to some date in the future, when the public will be allowed access to the building to attend the Council meetings. Council President Keegan-Ayer stated, “The safety of the residents of Frederick County is of the utmost importance at this time. We will re-schedule these items when this virus is better contained, the danger to the general public is significantly reduced and gathering in large crowds is once again permitted. Until then, I urge every resident to follow the lead and direction of our public health officials to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Further, I encourage all our residents to follow updates posted regularly on the Frederick County Health Department’s website (https://health.frederickcountymd.gov/)."
