County Board of Health Regulation Portal

Updated 4/29/2021

To protect the public health and welfare within Montgomery County during the COVID-19 pandemic, the County Board of Health Regulation establishes operating requirements and guidance for activities that occur in the County.

All business and organizations operating in the County, along with all County residents, must follow the Regulation.

You do not need a Letter of Approval if:

If you need a Letter of Approval, you must submit your request:

  • 6 or more days before the proposed event.
  • within 6 weeks of your proposed event.
    • We will evaluate your request based on the Board of Health Regulation at the time we consider your proposal.

Failure to obtain a Letter of Approval prior to proceeding with an event will be considered to be a violation of the Regulation and could subject the requestor, organizer, and venue to the appropriate fines and sanctions detailed in the Regulation.

Any person, organizer, or venue who is found to have held an event without a Letter of Approval will be automatically disqualified from receiving a future Letter of Approval.

Requests for Letters of Approval are considered each Tuesday morning. Please submit your proposal on Mondays by 5 p.m. ET if you would like it to be considered at the next day’s meeting. Otherwise, the proposal will be considered on the following Tuesday.
