Montgomery County - Click here for the updated Executive Order

  • 50% capacity for indoor dining
  • 100 persons capacity for outdoor gatherings
  • 50 persons capacity for indoor gatherings
  • Buffet services for food service facilities are allowed

Once 60% of the population receives at least one dose of the vaccine, these additional allowances will begin:

  • Food service establishments move to 75% of maximum capacity
  • Most businesses move to 75% capacity and could sell food and drink for consumption while seated
  • Gathering limits increase to 250 people indoors and no limit outdoors
  • Convention and banquet facilities limited to 50% of the maximum capacity per state restrictions

Under the final phase, once 50% of the population is fully vaccinated with a second dose or a one-dose vaccine, all businesses and activities in the county will have to follow any state or Maryland Department of Health requirements in place at the time, which for restaurants includes no limit on capacity, but with 6-foot social distancing in place.

Prince George's County

  • Indoor dining capacity at restaurants 50% 
  • Indoor private gatherings limited to 20 people
  • Indoor private gatherings limited to 50 people

In Maryland, Governor Hogan repealed the state’s outdoor masking mandate with the exception of large-scale ticketed venues such as concerts or sporting events, citing the latest guidance issued by CDC. Note: This does not apply to Montgomery County or Prince George's County. In Montgomery County, masks are required for outdoor dining for those who are unvaccinated, except when eating and drinking. See rules here. In Prince George’s County, the official guidance is not clear, but we got confirmation from the County Executive's office that masks are required for employees and patrons in outdoor dining settings, except when eating and drinking.
