Maryland will commemorate the one-year anniversary of the state’s first confirmed cases of COVID-19 with a ceremony scheduled for this evening. WCBC will air the ceremony in its entirety immediately following tonight’s Allegany-Mountain Ridge High School Football game. Governor Larry Hogan has  declared Friday a day of remembrance in honor of the more than 7,700 Marylanders who have lost their lives during the pandemic.

A twilight ceremony will be held at the State House Friday evening, and in coordination with local leaders, buildings across the state will be lit up amber.

As of Wednesday, Maryland has reported 383,956 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
