County Executive Warns: Don’t Celebrate Christmas, New Year’s in Large Groups

County Executive Marc Elrich is warning Montgomery County residents not to celebrate the upcoming Christmas and New Years holidays in large groups.

Elrich said at a coronavirus media briefing on Dec. 16, “We’ve got two big holidays that many of us are used to celebrating this year. Don’t do it this year—don’t celebrate Christmas with a large family. Do not have a large New Year’s Eve party.”

Elrich said he hopes county residents can stay patient and follow coronavirus safety precautions until the COVID-19 vaccine is available wide spread.

“We’ve been on this journey now for nine months and a little bit longer is actually something that will help us not have more fatalities and more sickness in our communities,” Elrich said.
