Worcester Health will host a virtual recognition event recognizing alcohol and tobacco retailers who passed compliance

(Snow Hill, MD)- The Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) is hosting a Virtual Recognition Event for alcohol and tobacco licensees that passed compliance checks conducted by local law enforcement during Fiscal Year 2021. In the past, this recognition has been done at a celebration breakfast, but with the concern surrounding coronavirus, WCHD has changed the nature of the recognition to a Virtual Event using Facebook Live.

The Virtual Recognition Event will take place on Monday, September 13, 2021, at the Worcester County Health Department. It will start at 10:00 AM. Officials from Worcester Health and other community partners will officially recognize the 77 Worcester County alcohol licensees and 49 tobacco retailers for a job well done. Not all 320+ alcohol nor all 140 tobacco licensees received compliance checks during Fiscal Year 2021. 

“We are excited to celebrate Worcester County alcohol and tobacco licensees who have helped to keep alcohol and tobacco out of the hands of our youth,” said Rebecca Jones, Health Officer. “We hope you can join us in this year's celebration.”
