Shop Safe

2020 has been a different year for all of us. In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, local businesses had to adapt to new policies and pivot their operations.

As local businesses have started to reopen their doors, they’re following necessary safety protocols so they can continue to serve our community. From hand sanitizer stations to mask protocols, local businesses are ready to welcome you back safely. When navigating this “new normal,” we won’t be able to predict the future, but we can support our small businesses.

Together We Can Keep Charles County Open for Business!

Ensure you are up to date with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) consumer protocols.
