OCEAN CITY, MD. (WJZ) — Ocean City’s mayor said Thursday the town has no plans to close indoor dining or bars, despite increasing numbers in Worcester County.

Meehan said cases have jumped in Ocean City because there’s more testing.
Instead, he continued to stress wearing masks in public, hand-washing and practicing physical distancing to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“We urge all our visitors to remember that you can’t press pause on safety while you’re on vacation,” Meehan said. “We must all continue to practice these safety precautions and be considerate of each other.”
Several restaurants have voluntarily closed temporarily either for precautions or after employees tested positive for the virus.
