Gov. Larry Hogan said Thursday that even though Maryland isn't one of the 42 states dealing with a massive surge in coronavirus cases, this is no time to get complacent.
"We have seen some slightly rising numbers in cases, in our positivity rate," Hogan said while visiting the Maritime Institute for Technology and Graduate Studies in Linthicum. "We're in much better shape than we were before. That doesn't mean it's not going to be a terrible crisis to deal with."
At one point, Marylanders were ordered to stay home except for essential business. However, orders have been eased to allow for indoor dining, retail and entertainment to continue to varying extents.
Hogan said his team will remain "vigilant" for possible spikes in cases in the days and weeks ahead.
