Many park facilities will increase number of visitors from 25 percent to 50 percent capacity. WHEATON, MD – Montgomery Parks, part of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is easing some of its COVID-19 restrictions related to outdoor and indoor gathering sizes on parkland and for its summer camps based on Montgomery County’s recently amended health regulations. Montgomery County’s updated health regulations are aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 while providing a phased approach to reopening. With over 50 percent of the county’s population having received a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination, the parks department is increasing outdoor gatherings to 100 people and indoor gatherings to 50 people in accordance with the county’s Fifth Amended Board of Health Regulation. Participants must still wear face coverings (indoors and outside where social distance cannot be maintained) and practice social distancing.
