Gov. Hogan Issues Stay-Home Order Starting At 8 p.m
On Monday, March 30th, Governor Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order for the state of Maryland. The order is set to begin Monday night at 8 p.m.
More specifically, this announcement means that no one should be leaving their home unless they are going out for an essential reason, such as getting food or receiving medical care. If people violate these orders, it will be deemed a misdemeanor and they could face a year in prison or a $5,000 fine.
Governor Hogan also stated that Marylanders should not leave the state. However, if they do, they must quarantine for 14 days.
“We are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay home. We are directing them to do so,” the governor stated in Monday’s press conference. He added that “every single Marylander can be a hero just by staying home.”
These updates come as Maryland coronavirus cases reach 1,413.
