I thought you would be interested in this letter that Aaron Worley, President of the Maryland Society of Surveyors, sent today to Governor Hogan.  In other states, Governors are implementing orders that certain businesses close, due to the Coronavirus. For example, Governor Wolf of Pennsylvania issued such an order, which is forcing firms in fields such as architecture, engineering, surveying, construction and related fields to close.  Mr. Worley's letter explains why any such order in Maryland should exempt surveyors and why surveyors should be permitted to continue operations.  The MSS officers believe surveyors would be severely harmed by such a shutdown, but should be exempt as we can operate safely and are critical to the economic well being of the state.
