Maryland to Allow Vaccinated People in Courthouses Without Masks

Maryland’s chief judge says state courthouses and judicial facilities can allow people vaccinated against the coronavirus to enter without masks starting next week.

The updated protocols, issued Tuesday by Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera, are in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The Associated Press reported.

The new protocols, scheduled to start Tuesday, will permit judicial workers and court visitors over the age of 2 to enter judicial buildings without masks, unless an administrative judge or state court administrator decides they are necessary, AP reported.

Unvaccinated people must use face masks, Barbera’s order says. However, a judge may require them to remove face masks and will be given a face shield in the case of a court proceedings.
