Symphony Village Residents,

The Board, in consultation with the general manager, continues to monitor the COVID-19 coronavirus situation closely. The Board and Management strive to provide the community with factual and current information as it becomes available. 

As you may be aware, Governor Hogan issued an announcement yesterday, March 23, 2020 regarding a new Emergency Order to control and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the state. The order directed all non-essential businesses to close to the general public as of 5:00 p.m. March 23, 2020. The emergency order does NOT direct Maryland residents to shelter in place. The Amended and Restated Executive Order may be accessed here (https://governor.maryland.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Gatherings-THIRD-AMENDED-3.23.20.pdf). Interpretive Guidance from the Governor’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) as it relates to the March 23, 2020 Executive Order may be accessed here (https://governor.maryland.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/OLC-Interpretive-Guidance-COVID19-04.pdf?fbclid=IwAR36DP1_5aVeuH-wAAdCMkIJnDQm3ne1PD0HrDLuf5Vfz7seSusMVR20P3Q).

When determining whether a business function is “essential,” Marylanders are directed to follow the federal guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) and the interpretive Guidance issued by the OLC. The CISA memorandum may be accessed here (https://www.cisa.gov/sites/default/files/publications/CISA-Guidance-on-Essential-Critical-Infrastructure-Workers-1-20-508c.pdf).
