Hogan Amends Recovery Act

As mandated by the Families First Coronavirus Recovery Act, all workplaces must post this flyer.

Governor Hogan released an amendment to his order closing non-essential businesses, prohibiting residents from traveling for non-essential purposes. 
At this time, Maryland residents may continue to travel across state lines for work. Residents of other states may enter our state for work at essential businesses. 
 
Currently, there is not a state-issued "Letter of Clearance" or similar document for employees of essential businesses to carry. It is recommended that employers draft and print their own letters containing:

  • Name and address of the employee 
  • Name and address of the business
  • Nature of the employee’s work and reasons why it fits the definition of essential
  • Employer's signature and contact information
 
Employees should have this letter on their person when traveling to-from work.
