With the first cases of COVID-19 in Maryland being confirmed on March 5, we are monitoring the situation and its possible impact on the business community closely. Currently, the Maryland Department of Health has stated that all programs should continue as usual, and the Chamber will continue holding meetings & events as scheduled. However, we ask that you please stay tuned to our social media, newsletter, and website for any changes.
Per the CDC guidelines, we are encouraging all of our members to please stay at home if they have cold or flu like symptoms.
