To clarify a recent article written about a Berlin Scavenger Hunt as a result of concerns about the activity violating the recent rules announced by Gov. Larry Hogan last Thursday stating there should not be any groups gathering larger than 10 people:

This local scavenger hunt was never meant to be done in large groups and was supposed to be a small family activity, according to Berlin Economic and Community Development Director Ivy Wells.

The scavenger hunt was meant to help alleviate boredom or cabin fever and give families an opportunity to explore Berlin individually..

As the article hit the newsstands at the same time as Hogan’s announcement, the timing was unfortunate, which led to several comments regarding the actions of Wells and the town.

When Wells came up with the idea after hearing about it from another resident of the town, it had been immediately after schools were closed for two weeks.

Once again, the activity was never meant to be done in large groups; there were no time restraints and could be done at the parents’ discretion.

We apologize for any confusion caused by this article.
