It’s August already? FrostburgFirst extends our welcome to returning and new students at Frostburg State University for the Fall 2020 semester. It may have been a little while longer than usual since the last time you were in Frostburg due to the unforeseen circumstances brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic, but we want you to feel happy, excited, and comfortable to be back in our cool small town! Keep an eye out on our socials for upcoming content created just to help you thrive in our small town safely!

Feeling like shopping a little closer to home? Shopping in Downtown Frostburg is safer than ever! Our businesses have spent the time since you were last here finding ways to bring you your favorite things about our little small town in the safest and cleanest ways possible, all while following social distancing guidelines and preventative measures towards stopping the spread of the virus. And Main Street (the heart of Downtown Frostburg) is only a less than 15 minute walk from Old Main, a perfect short walk to explore all the options in our community!

Need a new mask so that you can safely enjoy your favorite outings? Several small businesses in our local town are selling masks that can protect you while making you comfortable and matching your own style! Ladybug Boutique, Mountain City Traditional Arts, and Madison Paige Boutique are all selling fabric masks with an array of different designs, check them all out during your next trip to Downtown! Just as a reminder, these are times when you should wear a mask:

  • Picking up food, receiving delivery, or when you’re not at your table while eating out
  • Using public transportation
  • Shopping at retail, grocery, and specialty stores (any indoor businesses)
  • Being outdoors when social distancing is not possible
