Amended Protocols for Entering the Village Hall

On Thursday, August 5, the Montgomery County Council, sitting as the Board of Health, approved a health regulation to reinstitute mask/face covering requirements in all indoor public facilities in the county effective 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 7.  This change follows Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance, which recommends masks/face coverings for all individuals—regardless of vaccination status—in areas that meet the threshold for “substantial or high transmission” (see Guidance for Implementing COVID-19 Prevention Strategies in the Context of Varying Community Transmission Levels and Vaccination Coverage | MMWR (cdc.gov)).


 The below protocols for access to the Village Hall have been updated accordingly:

 

  • The Village is following the county’s guidance, which has opened government buildings with no access or social distancing requirements; however, ALL individuals entering indoor public spaces, including the Village Hall, are required to wear a mask/face covering per the Montgomery County Health Regulation that goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 7, 2021.   

 

  • Private rentals have resumed at full capacity, as well as classes and organizational activities.  All attendees and participants are required to wear a mask/face covering.

 

  • Some administrative personnel are continuing to work a hybrid schedule to leverage opportunities for focused, uninterrupted work time and on days when working partial days to avoid unnecessary commuting time.  Residents are encouraged to call/email administrative personnel to ensure the staffer they seek is on-site.  

 

  • We continue to require online submission of all permit applications and electronic processing of all permits and plan reviews.
