Most Marylanders support restrictions imposed by state officials to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, a Gonzales Maryland Poll released Tuesday shows.

Sixty-three percent of poll respondents think the restrictions have been about right while 22% say the measures have gone too far and 15% say the plans haven’t gone far enough.

The poll reported 64% of respondents say the stay-home measures have been worthwhile, while 22% think the restrictions caused more harm than good, burdening businesses and residents.

Roughly 57% of respondents said they are concerned about getting the virus, compared to 41% who are not.

As of Tuesday, Maryland has nearly 48,000 reported cases of COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, including more than 2,200 deaths, according to the state health department.
