The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) defines COVID-19 as “disease caused by a respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019. COVID-19 a new virus that hasn’t caused illness in humans before. Worldwide, COVID-19 has resulted in thousands of human infections, causing illness and in some cases death. Cases have spread to countries throughout the world, with more cases reported daily.” As of March 28th, 2020, there were nearly 1,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Maryland, according to reports by the state health department and CBS Baltimore.
In an effort to “flatten the curve” and protect vulnerable populations, Governor Larry Hogan has implemented a number of anti-pandemic protocols to reduce “community spread,” including social distancing, self-isolation, and mandated closures of non-essential businesses. Additionally, Governor Hogan requested a Major Disaster Declaration from the federal administration, which was approved on March 26th.
Any businesses that remain must implement anti-pandemic protocols defined by the Maryland Department of Health, which include installing COVID-19 signage as needed.
The term “COVID-19 signage” refers to any signs used to communicate or enforce anti-pandemic protocols, such as:
“COVID-19 signage” may also refer to any signage used to explain service disruptions, new hours of operation, and other pandemic-related changes.
At Baltimore Signs and Graphics, COVID-19 signage comes in any shape, color, or size. Everything is completely customizable, so it’s easy to create “on-brand” signage in any style.
