Maryland to allow indoor dining, gyms, casinos and more as Hogan lifts more coronavirus restrictions

June 10th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Governor  Larry Hogan pushed Maryland further into reopening from the coronavirus pandemic on Wednesday, laying out a timeline for indoor restaurants and outdoor amusements, indoor gyms, casinos and malls to resume operations with restrictions over the next couple of weeks.  The Baltimore Sun reports that with local approval, the following activities will be allowed in Maryland starting at 5 p.m. on Friday:

Indoor dining at restaurants, limited to 50% capacity, with tables at least six feet apart and other public health protective measures.

Outdoor amusements, such as miniature golf and go-kart tracks, limited to 50% capacity and with other public health protective measures.

With local approval, the following activities will be allowed in Maryland starting on June 19 at 5 p.m.:

  • Indoor fitness, gyms, martial arts, dance and other studio-type activities, limited to 50% capacity and with other public health protective measures.
  • Casinos, arcades and malls can reopen with public health protective measures.

The Republican governor’s announcement is the latest step in undoing a series of restrictions put into place to limit the spread of the coronavirus, which has claimed the lives of at least 2,719 people in the state. The state reported 561 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus Wednesday, bringing the state to 59,465 infections of COVID-19.

    They shut down the world for this virus. There is no treatment or vaccine, yet we are supposed to return to normal. Nothing has changed. So why is it ok to go out now if it wasn’t before? The response to this crisis doesn’t make any sense.
