    The State is now making arrangements to better streamline access to vaccinations.  They are allowing businesses to group and pre-register employees to allow for continuity of business.  Attached is the form that you can complete and send back to  erik.lyon@maryland.gov.  Businesses can only schedule their employees as a group at the State mass vaccinations.  ( Six Flags, Baltimore Convention Center, M&T Bank Stadium, Regency Furniture Stadium (Charles County), Wicomico Civic Center, Hagerstown Premium Outlets). Know that this applies to Maryland residents only.  Unfortunately the State has not set up a help line but suggest you send any questions to  psector@maryland.gov and provide a contact person and telephone number.

    The Maryland Insurance Administration has advised...

    Some Marylanders receiving vaccines at pharmacies are being asked for health insurance information

    • Consumers can NOT be charged for the vaccine.
    • Pharmacists and other providers are allowed to recoup administrative costs from insurance companies, Medicaid, Medicare
    • If the consumer has no insurance, there is a federal fund providers can apply to for reimbursement
    • This is the reason pharmacies may ask for insurance information
    • Consumer should never pay for vaccines, including copays or small fees
    • If consumers are asked to pay at any point, please report to Maryland Insurance Administration

    Lots of people are having difficulty paying their rent due to the pandemic. But today, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released an eviction moratorium order. It protects people from being evicted for not paying their rent if they complete a declaration form and give it to their landlord. This protection lasts until June 30, 2021.

    If you qualify for this help, fill out and sign a declaration form (available in both English and Spanish) and give it to your landlord. If you need help understanding whether you qualify, the Housing and Urban Development has a list of housing counselors in your area who can answer your questions. And whether or not you qualify, it might be worth finding out more about rental assistance programs. There may be local programs that offer rental assistance and other help.

    If landlords violate the CDC’s order, they can be subject to fines and even criminal penalties. So if things aren’t going the way you think they should with your landlord, you may be able to get legal help. Check for state or local protections for renters. And if you’re worried about being evicted, even with this moratorium in place, tell your state’s attorney general.

    Cox Creek and Masonville Citizen Committee Members: 

    MDOT MPA is happy to share some good news with our DMMP committees! For the third consecutive year, the only known pair of nesting bald eagles in Baltimore have returned to their home at Masonville Cove,  are actively showing nesting behaviors and can now be seen live on the eagle cam on MDOT MPA’s YouTube channel!  WJZ interviewed Tim Carney, Maryland Environmental Service senior environmental specialist and avid birder on behalf of MDOT MPA for a news segment which aired January 27th and 28th and can be found here.  Please see the attached press release for additional information. 

    Also on January 27 th , Governor Larry Hogan   announced   the  Board of Public Works approval of two contracts to study the use of dredged sediments for potential innovative reuse projects.  The contracts follow three others recently approved by the BPW to test use of dredged material to make bricks and pavers, concrete barriers and shoreline protection structures, as well as in sod production.  The press release is also attached for additional information. 

    MDOT MPA wishes to thank each of you for your role as active members of the DMMP in seeing these positive developments in the Port of Baltimore! 


    Kind regards,

    Katrina Y. Jones

    Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman will ease COVID-19 restrictions for restaurants and other businesses starting Friday, a response to the decreasing case rate after the holiday surge, he said.

    When his new executive order takes effect, restaurants will be allowed to serve up to 50% capacity indoors. Other businesses that have been closed entirely will be allowed to open at 25% capacity, he said in a Tuesday news conference.

    Restaurants will still be required to follow state safety guidelines, including mask orders, social distancing and 10 p.m. closures, he said.

    If coronavirus metrics rise again, Pittman said he would have to reinstate the restrictions to avoid overwhelming the two county hospitals.

    “There is a risk in doing this,” Pittman said. “Of course, if our numbers go up, we will have to go back; we will have to respond.”

    He encouraged residents to continue carrying out from restaurants and following public health guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.
