Maryland’s health department reported 870 new COVID-19 cases Monday, including eight more coronavirus-related deaths.

The state now has 91,144 confirmed cases, while its death toll sits at 3,389 deaths, the health department reported.

Gov. Larry Hogan announced last week that masks must be worn inside all gyms, casinos, restaurants, bars and office buildings, as well as in outdoor public areas when social distancing isn’t possible.

Hogan also placed an advisory on out-of-state travel to states with a positivity rate above 10%. Maryland’s rate is currently 4.36%.
