From the office of the County Executive:

In light of the Governor’s Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery, and in consultation with the County Health Officer while using recommendations from the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) and the Centers for Disease Control, a plan was developed to reopen recreational opportunities/facilities to the public. In light of an increase in health metrics and to bring Baltimore County in line with surrounding jurisdictions the following guidelines are enacted. The Department will follow all State and Local Executive Orders related to recreational activities.
