The MSBA, in partnership with 30+ Local and Specialty Bars and dozens of lawyer-legislators, has been pursuing establishing all attorneys be included in Phase 1C per national CDC guidelines as all surrounding jurisdictions have done. The most recent information provided publicly on the Maryland covidLINK website appears to indicate that all attorneys are NOW eligible for inclusion in Priority Group 1 based on our interpretation. The MSBA's contention is that attorneys are now eligible and has communicated this to leaders within the administration.

President Biden has sought to have all adults eligible by May 1, 2021. However, courts will be expanding their operations prior to that, and many attorneys currently meet in person with clients, vulnerable populations, and the incarcerated on a regular basis. The MSBA believes it's essential that attorneys continue to be prioritized.
