With the first coronavirus case confirmed, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. and other county officials and partners emphasized the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus and announced a series of closures at a press briefing Thursday morning.
Officials urged community members to remain calm and informed.
“It is clear that we must take this threat seriously. We are doing just that and will continue to do so here in Baltimore County,” Olszewski Jr. said.
A new online tool will allow Baltimore County residents to have a hand in tracking environmental data by reporting environmental problem areas throughout the county as well as projects aimed at mitigating some of those issues.
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr., announced the “Environmental Reporter” tool Tuesday as a way to increase public engagement, make county environmental data easier to access, and improve quality of life for community members.
