The COVID-19 pandemic is a once in a generation challenge requiring extraordinary actions from all levels of government. But what exactly are the legal boundaries on emergency powers for county and municipal governments in Maryland? What emergency powers are available to local governments as they work to protect the public health?

The Academy for Excellence in Local Governance, a partnership of the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, the Maryland Municipal League, and the Maryland Association of Counties, is proud to offer a free Zoom webinar for local government officials exploring these questions, sponsored by the Local Government Insurance Trust.

The webinar will feature Trudy Henson, J.D., Public Health Program Director at the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security and Adjunct Professor at the Francis King Carey School of Law.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 6th, at 12:00 noon, and register online to join the webinar.
