Maryland Public Service Commission Current Operations

OUR OFFICES:
The Commission’s physical offices at 6 Saint Paul Street in Baltimore are open to the public. Please note that as of February 22, 2022, Maryland state employees and visitors will no longer be required to wear masks while in state owned and leased buildings. This directive supersedes any local mask mandates while in state-owned or leased space, however local mandates are applicable in public or common areas of buildings where the state leases office space. The wearing of masks will be voluntary. Unvaccinated state employees and visitors are encouraged to continue to wear masks in state-owned and leased buildings.

Individuals entering buildings will be asked to self-screen for COVID symptoms and expected to refrain from entering if symptoms are present. Members of the public who need to conduct business with any Commission division are encouraged to notify the office first that they plan to visit. Contact information for PSC offices.
