Annapolis, Maryland (Wednesday, May 6, 2020) – Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says the state is on track to reopen as early as next week. Hogan announced the state’s coronavirus hospitalizations and ICU patients have flattened in recent days, signaling encouraging progress in the right direction.
“If these trends continue into next week, we will be ready to lift the stay-at-home order and begin Stage One of our recovery plan,” said Hogan at an afternoon press conference.
In the meantime, Hogan is relaxing some of his restrictions. Starting Thursday, a range of outdoor activities will be available for residents. Hogan is opening up state parks and beaches and Marylanders can now golf, boat, camp, and play tennis.
