FREDERICK, Md. (WJZ) — Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner announced Thursday that the county will fully implement the initial portion of Stage One of Gov. Hogan’s Roadmap to Recovery plan, allowing retail businesses, barbershops, hair salons and indoor worship to operate with limitations.

Beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29, retail businesses can reopen at 50 percent capacity.


Barbershops and hair salons can also reopen at 50 percent capacity and by appointment only. Morning hours must be established exclusively for seniors and other vulnerable residents at least one day each week.

Indoor worship facilities may open at 50 percent capacity. No more than 250 people may be present.

For all three categories, safety requirements include the use of face coverings by employees and customers, and physical distancing of six feet.
