Preparing for COVID-19 Surge

Is the University of Maryland Medical Systems prepared in the event of a COVID-19 surge?

Re-openings and lack of social distancing have caused huge surge numbers in southern states.  In Texas, Florida and Arizona, hospitals are feeling it.  Could we also see the same in Maryland as the region opens up and restless residents itch to get out and enjoy themselves? We’re looking into what one medical system is doing to address the possibility of a summer surge.
