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.”
