COVID-19 case numbers continue to rise locally and nationwide, according to health officials. In Montgomery County, additional restrictions could be underway soon to help prevent the spread of the virus.

“We’re continuing to assess and continuing to think through strategies that may include additional restrictions and recommendations that will go into effect in the near future,” said Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles during the county’s weekly COVID-19 virtual media briefing on Wednesday.

During the briefing, both County Executive Marc Elrich and Dr. Gayles responded to Governor Larry Hogan’s recent announcement to tighten the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
