CCSO Statement Regarding Social Media Posts and Board of Commissioners Vote on Governor’s Phase One Reopening Order

Waldorf, MD - As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our region and nation, we are reminded of the delicate balance between opening businesses and maintaining public health and safety. Two days ago the Board of Commissioners in Charles County voted to continue Governor Hogan’s initial Stay-At-Home Order and wait until May 29 to implement phase one of Maryland’s “Roadmap to Recovery.”  The outcome of the vote resulted in strong reactions on social media, some that raised concern among our community. Further, a protest of the vote took place earlier this evening at the County Government Building in which the Sheriff’s Office monitored. The protest concluded without incident.    

Throughout these challenging times, the Sheriff’s Office primary role has been to maintain public safety and we appreciate the overall cooperation we have experienced so far. Out of an abundance of caution, we have reached out to all five commissioners as well as community leaders and we will continue to work with them to address any concerns.  We will continue to monitor this situation and any others brought to our attention to ensure public safety is never compromised.
