Md. Comptroller Reinstates Mask Mandate in Agency Buildings

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot has reinstated a mask requirement in indoor public areas and gathering spaces at all agency offices.

The new policy, which went into effect Thursday, covers all who work or do business in the Louis L. Goldstein Treasury Building, the Revenue Administration Building, the Annapolis Data Center, the Comptroller’s Baltimore Office, regional branch offices, satellite offices and the Motor Fuel Laboratory.

Indoor public areas and gathering spaces include hallways, restrooms and shared office spaces, Franchot’s office said. The mandate is voluntary in private spaces that are occupied by a single vaccinated person.

“With the continued threat of COVID-19, the safety of our employees and the public is paramount,” Franchot said in a statement. “This simple preventative measure can help stop others from getting sick so that we can finally overcome this terrible pandemic that has claimed hundreds of thousands of American lives.”

The mandate follows the comptroller’s decision earlier this week to have 12 agency offices return to appointment-only visits.
