    COVID19 / MASTMA UPDATE: Sports Turf Maintenance Allowed

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that all non-essential businesses are hereby closed to the general public, effective as of 5:00 PM yesterday evening. Prior to the announcement, MASTMA partnered with other organizations requesting an exemption to the order and thus, sports turf fields are considered "landscape" under The Commercial Facilities Sector (see the Interpretive Guidance link below). What this means is that while sports turf fields in Maryland are not open to the public for play, they are open to be able to perform maintenance.

    The circumstances we are facing are unprecedented and further actions taken to combat COVID-19 are unpredictable. MASTMA will continue to advocate for our industry and will communicate with you as more updates become available. Thank you~
