Ocean City Allows Hotels To Reopen

May 15th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

A week after announcing the opening of Ocean City's beach and boardwalk, Mayor Rick Meehan announced the lifting of short-term rental restrictions.  WBAL reports that at Thursday’s  meeting of the City Council, Meehan announced his declaration, which took effect Thursday evening and follows Gov. Larry Hogan's announcement that Maryland's stay-at-home order would lapse Friday evening.

 “The town is currently working with the Hotel Motel Restaurant Association and Chamber of Commerce to ensure we follow stage one of the Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery and Back to Business Pledge," Meehan said in a statement. "We encourage residents and visitors to follow health and safety guidelines, including physical distancing and gathering limits. Personal responsibility and individual comfort levels are incredibly important to exercise during each phase of recovery. Each and every one of us has an obligation to exercise personal responsibility to protect our families, our friends, our co-workers, and neighbors, so as a community we keep Ocean City moving forward.”
