Prince George’s County to end indoor mask mandate Monday

February 28, 2022

Officials announced Friday Prince George’s County will end its indoor mask mandate Monday, a directive which has been in effect since last August. The announcement comes as COVID-19 cases decline locally and nationally following a surge caused by the highly transmissible omicron strain of the virus. Prince George’s County has the lowest transmission rate of any jurisdiction in Maryland, according to County Executive Angela Alsobrooks; its transmission rate is categorized as “moderate” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while all other Maryland jurisdictions are currently “substantial” or “high.”
