Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (USA Today)

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan warned of a major surge in coronavirus cases and urged residents Thursday to wear masks to prevent the virus's spread.

Maryland’s statewide mask mandate remains in full effect, the Republican governor said during a news conference. Under this order, all Marylanders over the age of 5 are required to wear face coverings in the public spaces of all businesses across the state.

“It is the best way to keep you and your family members safe, keep people out of the hospital, save lives and to keep Maryland open for business," Hogan said. "I mean, it's that simple. It's not that hard. Just wear the damn masks.”

Contrary to popular belief, not all Republican politicians are Trump ass-kissers! 
(And some actually do care about their constituents!!! :-)

I don't know too much about Maryland politics, but from the little I've heard about him,he seems like a very sensible guy. (Which now-adays seems to be an increasingly rare quality amongst politicians :-(

Although perhaps I should be-- I don't know if I mentioned it here, but my cousin lives in Md-- different part of the state than you do. (She lives in Kensington, near the NIH.)

The last place in the USA that I was in was Baltimore, and that was 12 years ago.

Kudos to Larry, he sure see's what is happening in the US. 

Today the US had 118,204 new COVID cases the highest ever recorded in the US. 1125 deaths.

The general consensus is that it will continue to get worse for a while...

Tell me about it. Just got home after eight days in the hospital with the Covid experience. In spite of following the guidelines, it got to me anyway. I'll write a summation in Meta in a few days when I'm feeling stronger...it really wipes you out
