My Rosemary plant is drying up, should I give it more water (tap water) and how much? It is in a pot outside and gets about 6 hours of sunshine. The plant was inside until after Christmas.

It sounds like your plant is experiencing some shock at a rapid environment change. Anytime you move a plant from indoors to outdoors and vice versa, it needs to be acclimated (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/acclimating-houseplants-outdoors.htm).

I would treat it the same as if it had transplant shock. Here is information on how to do that:
