CARROLL MANOR COVID-19 REC UPDATE
Dear Carroll Manor Families,

I hope my email finds you all doing well and staying safe and healthy. I am writing today to give you an update on the Maryland Strong: A Roadmap To Recovery and Baltimore County Parks and Recreation.

As Governor Hogan has stated the recovery is going to be fluid and flexible with the reopening of Maryland. The Roadmap utilizes key criteria drawn from sources like the White House Coronavirus Task Force’s Guidelines for Opening Up America Again, Johns Hopkins’ Public Health Principles for a Phased Reopening During COVID-19: Guidance for Governors, and the American Enterprise Institute’s National Coronavirus Response: A Road Map to Reopening.

The Roadmap is divided into Low Risk, Medium Risk and High Risk categories for activities. These delegations are based on numerous factors drawn from both scientific and industry studies. These phases are very fluid and flexible depending on the Governors direction to keep our communities safe. All phases of activities would be phased roll out over a period of time using the White House’s recommended gating protocols.

  • Low Risk:
    This first stage of the recovery, and involves business, community, religious, and quality of life improvements. This phase is focused on the broad category of category of “quality of life” improvements and will involve the lifting of the Governor’s “Stay at Home” Order.
  • Medium Risk:
    This will likely be a longer stage of the initial recovery, but will also be the stage, when a large number of businesses and activities come back online.
  • High Risk:
    These are the more ambitious and long-term goals. There is no realistic timeline yet from any of the scientific experts for achieving this level, as this requires either a widely available and FDA approved vaccine or safe and effective therapeutics that can rescue patients with significant disease or prevent serious Illness in those most at risk to reach a full return to normal conditions.

So, where does that leave CMRC?

As of today this is the tentative plan (which can change depending on Governor Hogan). The below information is fluid and flexible and can change without notice.

Spring Activities: Cancelled

Summer Activities: Cancelled in person, commissioners will be given the option to hold virtual camps

Fall Activities: Currently holding, no registrations will be open at this time

What happens next?

All registrants will receive a FULL REFUND.

How do I get my refund?
All refunds will be distributed by check over the next 90 days. All checks will require a hand written signature from the president so please be patient. All program commissioners will be notified when their program checks are ready and registrant parents will be told which week they can pick up their checks from either Hydes Park and/or Sweet Air Park. The pickup days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays.

As parents come by to either park to pick up their checks you will be expected to sign acknowledging that you have received payment. We will be following all CDC guidelines during this process. We ask that you please cash your refund within 30 days of receipt.

To say thank you for picking up your check all families will receive a Kona Ice from the CMRC board.

I appreciate everyone being patient as we are all trying to understand the process and how it affects our programs.

Best wishes and stay safe,
