Governor Larry Hogan announced this morning that he signed an executive order where effective on Monday, March 30 at 8 p.m., Maryland is under a stay at home order. This order is to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Under this executive order, All Marylanders must stay at home if that are not considered essential personnel. Exceptions are being made for picking up medicine, groceries, or seeking urgent medical care.

Gov. Hogan explained this executive order is needed because the amount of deaths from the coronavirus has tripled from 5 to 15 over the weekend. There are 1,413 cases in Maryland and 186 reported cases in Baltimore County.
Over the weekend, there was a reported case of COVID 19 at Oak Crest Senior Living Community in Parkville.
