Tuesday May 12

Yesterday was cool, blustery and we had snow showers much of the day.  Today will have widespread frost before 8:00 am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 47 degrees. There will also be areas of frost after 3:00 am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low around 32. West wind 6 to 11 mph becoming light after midnight.

I love this photo from reader Matt Dugan.  Great job and many thanks for sharing Matt.

The Commissioners are holding their next public meeting a week from today on May 19th at 4:00 pm.  The meeting will be Live-Streamed at https://www.facebook.com/garrettcountygovernment/  For more information please click here.

As a few readers pointed out, the message I posted from POA of Deep Creek Lake needed some clarification.  Bob Sutton of the POA must have agreed, as they sent out this update yesterday, with input from Commissioner Paul Edwards. Here it is, again verbatim from their latest communication:

In connection with the announcement of the Order, Governor Hogan stated that people traveling into Maryland from anywhere outside of Maryland are required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Interpretive Guidance COVID19-08, which the Office of Legal Counsel issued on March 30, 2020, clarifies that the requirement for travelers into Maryland to self-quarantine does not apply to people who regularly commute into Maryland from an adjacent state or the District of Columbia or vice versa, or to people transiting through Maryland who have only minimal contact with Maryland (i.e., only stopping for fuel, food, or other necessary supplies, not making contact with anyone for more than three minutes at a distance of less than six feet). Commuters must follow federal and state health department guidance regarding self-quarantining (for example, because of recent travel to the New York/Tri-State area) even if not required to self-quarantine under the new Maryland requirement. 

A fairly lean  news day folks…
