our actions over these next few days may be the single most important factor in controlling coronavirus transmission for the remainder of the pandemic. Easter and Passover are traditionally times of family celebration and togetherness. This year, what are typically times of joy have the potential to cause unintentional spread of virus and a new spike in disease. The Health Department implores everyone to stay home and celebrate in-person only with people who live in your household. FaceTime, Skype, and other video platforms are the perfect way to share holidays with loved ones outside of your home.
If virus transmission increases over the next week, it will put into motion entirely new rounds of COVID outbreaks that will last through the month of May. This will lead to longer closures of businesses and recreational activities. Regardless of Executive Orders from Governor Hogan and advice from national health experts, reducing further spread of coronavirus ultimately rests on the willingness of our community to minimize contact with those outside of our households.
A faster squelching of coronavirus infections in Calvert will begin to take the burden off of overworked first responders and medical staff. These dedicated volunteers and professionals continue to risk their own health and safety to serve us. The least we can do is limit our trips to the grocery store, maintain distance between ourselves and others, and wash our hands frequently.
The health department proposes people voluntarily limit trips for groceries to once every 5 days on the following schedule:
Last name starting with A-C shop on days ending with 0 and 5
Last name starting with D-G shop on days ending with 1 and 6
Last name starting with H-L shop on days ending with 2 and 7
Last name starting with M-R shop on days ending with 3 and 8
Last name starting with S-Z shop on days ending with 4 and 9
We all want to get back to our normal routines as soon as possible. Our actions over the next week, and sustaining those efforts through the next month, are the key to getting us there. We can’t speed up time, but we can dramatically slow the spread of the virus. Take care of yourself, your family, and your neighbors. The Health Department wishes everyone a happy and healthy holiday.
I get it. I'm close to several stores, so I would venture out early in the morning when there are fewer people likely to be there. I can wait until "my day" for the fresh fruits & veggies, or rotisserie chickies.What if the store only gets toilet paper deliveries on monday?
I've been going out once a week to limit exposure as much as possible.

Fu@k the CC Health Department! I have one day off a week and I'll be damned if they tell me when I can go to the store!Calvert Health Department put these "suggestions" out:
And some thought Vrai was overreacting This is quickly becoming the norm. The media and government have instilled fear and its taking hold with an iron grip.It’s just a matter of time before we get our first death from non compliance.
Just dont forget your mask and gloves, hat and sunglasses. With all that on, you should be able to shop for free if youre quick about getting out of the door.Fu@k the CC Health Department! I have one day off a week and I'll be damned if they tell me when I can go to the store!

I'm certainly NOT going to only shop on those days,either. I'm waiting for the grocery store to put a person out there checking IDs. I'll be calling my local representatives.
