On Tuesday, June 15, 2021, Governor Hogan announced that after 15 months, Maryland will lift its COVID-19 state of emergency effective July 1, as well as any other emergency restrictions and mandates. The announcement came after more than 70 percent of Marylanders received at least one vaccine dose, with the state reaching an all-time low positivity rate of 0.82%. The order also ends the rest of the state's mask mandate in any settings, including schools, camps and childcare facilities, except where required by local rules. Finally, other regulations will be subject to a 45-day grace period, effective July 1 - August 15, including the state's ban on evictions and foreclosures, winding down emergency health operations and renewing driver's licenses.
For more information about the disease and to stay current on issues around the US and other Countries the Center for Disease Control (CDC) offers a lot of good information.
