The Arundel Center in Annapolis will open to the public briefly on Friday, March 20 to accommodate the 9:30 a.m. emergency County Council meeting. Measures are being taken to assure social distancing protocols are followed for any members of the public who attend. The meeting will be broadcast live, and the public is encouraged to submit written testimony in advance of the meeting, rather than attend in person. The only item on the agenda is an ordinance to extend the county’s proclamation of civil emergency, which is set to expire on Friday. Information on Friday’s Council meeting may be found on the County Council website, www.aacounty.org/departments/county-council/

County Executive Pittman also announced today that the county Emergency Operations Center is now partially activated. All county agencies are working together under the unified command of Acting Chief Tim Mikules. A Joint Information Center has been established to coordinate resources, provide updates and streamline public messaging.
