May 6th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Governor  Larry Hogan said Wednesday that  if the coronavirus numbers continue to trend downward, Maryland could start to begin easing restrictions, but schools will remain closed through the rest of the academic year. The governor outlined  the state's progress on the number of hospitalizations and the numbers of people in intensive care units.

The governor said certain elective surgeries and some outdoor activities can resume.

ELECTIVE SURGERIES: The Maryland Department of Health will issue guidelines, effective immediately, to allow for elective procedures at the discretion of local hospitals and health care providers. Dentists are included in elective procedures.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Effective at 7 a.m. Thursday, the list of safe outdoor activities will be broadened to include: golf, tennis, boating, fishing, camping. Closed functions at state parks will be reopened, including all state beaches for walking and exercise, and playgrounds.

    What about the “if you cross state lines, you should self-quarantine for 2 weeks.” ?? Are we able to cross state lines yet, without quarantining ourselves? Do we even WANT to try to cross state lines yet??
