Tell the Commissioners to Implement Phase 2 with NO DELAY!
As with every new allowance from the Governor of Maryland, the Charles County Region has been poised and ready to reopen at the moment of the announcement. The delay of two weeks for Phase 1 hurt many individuals, businesses, and families in Charles County and caused irreparable division. Please, do not allow this to happen again.
Under the Governor's limited Phase 2 reopening plan, very few additional businesses are even included in the order. However, many struggling salons and personal service businesses need to get back to work before they go insolvent. Even more importantly, they are READY. They do not need further education or training from the Health Department. They already adhere to the highest industry standards for sanitation and have all undergone further COVID-19 certification. They serve only one client at a time and wear masks as part of their regular operations!
I fear that if you vote to delay our county as you did in Phase 1, that the permanent closure of businesses will begin immediately and plunge our flourishing county into economic despair. I believe you will do the right thing and vote to follow the Governor's guidance with no delays.
