County Executive Steuart Pittman announced yesterday that Anne Arundel County will align with new state policy lifting capacity limits on restaurants, retail establishments, religious institutions and certain other facilities.

The executive order will also keep the county’s restrictions on third-party food delivery services, preventing their charges from exceeding 15 percent of the purchase price of an online restaurant order. All other COVID restrictions will align with the most recent state executive order. Executive Order #45
will be available on the county’s Road to Recovery
website once signed by the County Executive.*NOTE- the above order states "Foodservice Establishments shall not serve customers who are not seated."
