Maryland Can Begin Stage 3 of Reopening Friday, Governor Says

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says the state can enter Stage 3 of its Roadmap to Recovery Plan at the outset of the upcoming Labor Day weekend.

Starting Friday at 5 p.m., live entertainment spots and movie theaters can open at 50 percent capacity, up to 100 people indoors and 250 people outdoors, the governor said. Retail stores and houses of worship can increase their capacity from 50 to 75 percent reported.

Hogan said during a press conference Tuesday that individual counties can set the parameters of their reopening.

“I want to remind the people of Maryland that moving into stage three does not mean that this crisis is behind us and remind them that we must remain vigilant so that we can keep Maryland open for business, as we head into the holiday weekend,” the governor said, Baltimore’s WJZ-TV reported.

Prince George’s and Montgomery counties, which neighbor the District, haven’t yet responded to the governor’s missive.

State officials said that as of Tuesday, Maryland’s positivity rate has been under five percent for 68 consecutive days and under four percent for 24 consecutive days and 15 of 24 jurisdictions have positive rates below 3.5 percent, WJZ reported.
