COVID-19 Update

January 31, 2022

On March 13, 2020, the Laytonsville Town Hall was closed to the public because of the COVID-19 virus crisis.  Like many people I initially thought this would only last for a few months.  We are approaching the two-year mark and the fear of contracting the virus has continued.  Each time we seem to make headway in fighting COVID-19, a variant pops up raising fears and concerns.  Beginning in April 2020, we utilized Zoom to reach our Council, Commissions, Board, staff, and residents during this time of distancing.  It would be reasonable to expect virtual town meetings to continue for the foreseeable future.  Although we miss the opportunity to meet in-person our town staff have adopted procedures which continue to allow prompt processing of town business. Please check the town’s website for activities and information at  The town is using Zoom to meet and to discuss business each month and the public is welcome to join any of our virtual meetings.  Our website has a calendar of meetings as well as the URL to use in joining the meetings.

Do not forget that if you need to contact the Town Hall, you can call on 301-869-0042 and leave a voice message.  You will be contacted very soon.  If you would like to use email, you can reach the Assistant Clerk at  

With the good news about the pandemic decreasing in Maryland, we are hopeful that in-person activities will soon start up.

Stay well and continue to check our website for updates.
