Maryland to Move into Stage Two of Recovery:

At yesterday's press conference, Governor Hogan announced that Maryland will begin to move into Stage Two of the "Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery"  with a safe and gradual reopening of workplaces and businesses, along with additional personal services and state government offices. Beginning at 5:00 pm on Friday, June 5th, non-essential businesses may open to the public. Specific closures are still in place. Read the press release and the Governor's latest executive order.

This comes after the state’s positivity rate dropped to single digits, and total current hospitalizations fell to their lowest level in more than seven weeks.
As with Stage One, Stage Two will be implemented with a flexible, community-based approach that empowers individual jurisdictions to make decisions regarding the timing of reopenings. All 24 of the state’s jurisdictions have now entered Stage One.
