Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that the COVID-19 state of emergency in the state will expire on June 30 and will not be renewed.
“Today I announced the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency in Maryland. On Thursday, July 1, any and all emergency restrictions and mandates of any kind will end. Masks or face coverings will not be required in any settings anywhere, including schools, camps, and child care facilities.
July 1 will also begin a 45-day grace period through August 15 where certain regulations will continue to be relaxed to help people complete the transition out of the pandemic. This includes an additional 45 days to renew your expired driver’s license, and if you have not yet made an appointment to do that yet, you should take care of that as soon as possible.
Thanks in large part to the hard work, the sacrifices, and the vigilance of the people of Maryland, we have finally reached the light at the end of that long tunnel. Each and every one of you—your actions—have made this day possible.”
