I'm pulling the plug on the spring swap.

Montgomery County will enter Phase One of the re-opening plan on Monday, June 1, 2020.

Here's What Phase One Means:
- Retail establishments are curbside only
- Restaurants and bars with outdoor seating can reopen (curbside pick-up continues)
- Child care can open for children of essential and phase one reopening employees
- Barbershops and hair salons must operate by appointment-only
- Car washes can do exterior cleaning only
- Manufacturing can fully reopen with precautions and guidance
- Outdoor day camps are limited to nine children and one counselor
- Low-contact outdoor youth sports are allowed
- Golf courses, archery, shooting ranges, marinas, campgrounds, horseback riding facilities, and tennis courts are still open

What's Not Allowed Under Phase One:
- Swimming pools (licensing and inspection can be requested and conducted)
- Senior centers
- Fitness centers
- Movie theaters
- Shopping malls
- Nail salons

Note that this no mention of the stay-at-home order being lifted or gatherings of more than 10 people. For the safety of all, I think it best to cancel the swap.

That said, I'm tentatively planning on September 12, 2020 for the fall swap. I've changed the dates on the spring swap pages, so people that are signed up already are good as well as their plant offerings.

So, between now and then everyone STAY SAFE and have fun playing in the dirt.
