Helping Employers Keep the Lights On

From Councilmember Friedson’s Office:

The Council yesterday approved a $20 million Public Health Emergency Grant Fund to help local businesses and nonprofits pay employees and operating costs during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Over the last week, we worked collaboratively with the County Executive and his staff throughout the process and have every expectation that they will be able to implement the Grant Program as quickly as possible, so our local employers can get the support they desperately need.

This is a time when we all need to put aside any philosophical differences and work together to support each other. I am proud of how closely we have worked with the County’s Alcohol Beverage Services to allow local restaurants to sell liquor and cocktails as part of their to-go or delivery options. In addition, our office helped the weekly farmer’s market at Bethesda Elementary School stay open despite the school’s closure and are constantly communicating with business owners and nonprofit leaders about their immediate concerns and what the County can do to help. 

Make no mistake about it: The stay at home order that Governor Hogan has put in place is absolutely necessary to protect more people from being infected and for ensuring our hard-working healthcare professionals can adequately care for those suffering severe symptoms.

Please follow these instructions. Stay at home, except for essential trips. Wash your hands. If you do leave your home, don’t gather in groups and stay at least six feet away from those not in your household. 

We will get through this together. We’re doing everything we can to help vulnerable residents and local employers and to get the message out about how to best protect ourselves and loved ones. We need everyone to do their part. 

As shown in the graphic below, the Council today also approved a $6 Million Special Appropriation to support the increased need for existing County safety-net programs and direct aid for families in crisis, $260,000 for Manna Food Center to reach food insecure MCPS students, and $250,000 to help provide hotel and motel lodging for frontline health care staff. We also passed a $10 million appropriation to assist our county hospitals as they increase beds we know we need for surge capacity. 

Governor Hogan Institutes Shelter in Place

Governor Hogan yesterday directed all Marylanders to shelter-in-place as of 8 pm yesterday. What does that mean? Basically, unless you need to get essential food, medicine, medical care, or a few other goods and services, you need to stay home. Short walks or bike rides with a household member are also permitted. If you visit another state, you must self-quarantine for 14 days. Restaurants may still offer curbside pickup and delivery.

Stay-at-Home Order. a. All persons living in the State of Maryland are hereby ordered, effective as of 8:00 p.m. on March 30, 2020, to stay in their homes or places of residences (“Homes”) except:

i. to conduct or participate in Essential Activities (defined below);

ii. staff and owners of businesses and organizations that are not required to close pursuant to paragraph IV or paragraph V below may travel: 1. between their Homes and those businesses and organizations; and 2. to and from customers for the purpose of delivering goods or performing services;

iii. staff and owners of Non-Essential Businesses (defined below) may travel: 1. between their Homes and those Non-Essential Businesses for the purpose of engaging in Minimal Operations; and 2. to and from customers for the purpose of delivering goods. b. As used herein, “

Essential Activities” means:

i. Obtaining necessary supplies or services for one’s self, family, household members, pets, or livestock, including, without limitation: groceries, supplies for household consumption or use, supplies and equipment needed to work from home, laundry, and products needed to maintain safety, sanitation, and essential maintenance of the home or residence;

ii. Engaging in activities essential for the health and safety of one’s self, family, household members, pets, or livestock, including such things as seeking medical or behavior health or emergency services, and obtaining medication or medical supplies;

iii. Caring for a family member, friend, pet, or livestock in another household or location, including, without limitation, transporting a family member, friend, pet, or livestock animal for essential health and safety activities, and to obtain necessary supplies and services;

iv. Traveling to and from an educational institution for purposes of receiving meals or instructional materials for distance learning;

v. Engaging in outdoor exercise activities, such as walking, hiking, running, or biking, but only in compliance with paragraph III below and applicable social distancing guidance published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and the Maryland Department of Health (“MDH”);

vi. Travel required by a law enforcement officer or court order; or

vii. Traveling to and from a federal, State, or local government building for a necessary purpose.

Maryland COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund Programs for Businesses

Do you own a small business? Here are some Maryland funding resources that you might find helpful as we make our way through the coronavirus pandemic.

Maryland has authorized $130 million in loan and grant funding for small businesses and manufacturers that have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This emergency assistance provides interim relief and proceeds that can be used to pay cash operating expenses including payroll, suppliers, rent, fixed debt payments and other mission critical cash operating costs.

If you are a Maryland-based business impacted by the Coronavirus with under 50 full- and part-time employees, or a Maryland manufacturer, check out the programs below to see if you qualify for assistance.

Hungry? Here are the Pike District restaurants offering curbside pickup and/or delivery.
