County Health Department Closes Dutch Farmers Market in Annapolis Due to COVID19 Related Violations
The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has closed the Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers Market located at 2472 Solomons Island Road, Annapolis, due to COVID-19 related violations.
The violations cited employees’ failure to wear face coverings as required, and the Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers Market was issued a Notice of Suspension, according to the health department.
The facility will remain closed until a written request is submitted describing actions that will be taken to resolve the face covering violations, a re-inspection is conducted and is officially reopened by the health department.
This is the first food service facility that the county has closed due to COVID-19 violations, officials said today.
"The Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers Market received previous warnings," the health department said in a statement. "This was the next step of enforcement due to the facility's consistent violation of the order."
