Quick heads up as we head into the Holidays! Looks as though the tides may be shifting again in Maryland as Governor Hogan has now issued a new set of guidelines in relation to the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a result, the SOS Safe Ride program has also received a short stick in these Coronavirus procedures as well.

To recap, the bars and restaurants of Frederick County will cease operations before 10:00pm until the State deems the Covid Cases at a reasonable level to move back towards further stages of the reopening plan. In order to do our part in slowing the spread, the SOS Safe Ride program will also not operate during this time, effective Friday, 11/20/2020.

As we have said throughout the pandemic – in understanding that we drive a lot of people on a weekly basis, we feel that this is also the best move in order for us to do our part in protecting the interest and health of not only those who use the program, but the volunteer drivers who give their time to get everyone home safely.

Prayerfully this shouldn’t last outside of the next few weeks of the mandate, so in the meantime, please be safe and rest assured that we’re going to continue monitoring this situation closely and we’ll be reopening the program no later than when bars/restaurants have had their 10pm restriction lifted (or possibly sooner).

Our thoughts are with you all and we wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
With Love,
The Safe Ride Foundation
