Statement about COVID-19
August 16, 2021
We are over a year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, Maryland has had over 483,641 confirmed cases and COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 9,916 people in our state (Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center). We grieve with those who have lost loved ones and our hearts are with our fellow Marylanders who have suffered and continue to suffer in countless ways during this last year of turmoil.
Most of our team continues to work remotely and we have decided to keep all large meetings and programs virtual through September 30, 2021. Because, according to CDC data, Baltimore City is now an area of “substantial” community transmission for COVID-19, we are currently not allowing external guests to use our meeting spaces. We are evaluating these decisions throughout the year as the safety of our staff, members, and the community is paramount.
