Dear Friends,

County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced yesterday that Prince George's County is preparing to move toward an incremental, modified Phase 1 opening. Please know, that this gradual opening is still more restrictive than the Phase 1 announced by Governor Hogan two weeks ago. 

Read the updated Executive Order here which lists all of the new opening requirements.

Here are a few of the openings which will go into effect on Monday, June 1:
- Curbside pick-up is allowed for any retailer.
- Barbers and hair salons may open with specific, limiting guidelines. 
House of worship may open with 10 or fewer people.
 -C hildcare for essential employees will continue, with specific, limiting guidelines.
-Automatic car washes may open.
The County has updated the COVID-19 dashboard. Check it out here:

It is critically important to continue to wear masks when you are outside your home and may encounter people you do not live with.

Rental assistance applications are now closed. Applications already submitted surpass the funding available. The following are other free resources:

Donations to Greater Riverdale Cares allow CKAR to purchase meals from locally-owned restaurants which are distributed to those in need throughout District 3. Greater Riverdale Cares helps these locally-owned restaurants keep staff on payroll and feeds local residents in need. To date, we've purchased and distributed  3,000 meals from local, women and minority owned businesses and distributed the meals to those in need in our community. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this effort!

I have created an online form in English and Spanish to help connect District 3 residents with resources and assistance.

The top portion of the online form lists numerous resources. The bottom portion requests contact information and a brief description of needs. My team and I will use this form to help connect District 3 residents in need with with assistance. Please share the link with others. (Note this shortened link it is case-sensitive.)
