Stay At Home Order in Maryland Effective 8 p.m., March 30
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order Monday due to what he called a "rapidly escalating emergency situation." The order takes effect at 8 p.m. Monday, March 30.
"This is a deadly public health crisis," Hogan said. "We are no longer asking or suggesting" that Marylanders stay home, but are directing them to do so, he said, noting he signed the "stay-at-home directive" Monday morning.
"No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or for an essential reason such as obtaining food or medicine, seeking urgent medical attention" or other necessary activity, Hogan said. Only essential businesses may remain open. - Gaithersburg Patch
