Maryland: Regional Real Time Update

March 30, 2020
This morning, Governor Larry Hogan issued an official “Stay-at-Home-Order” that goes into effect at 8pm tonight. Restaurants are exempt from this order as long as you are doing takeout and/or delivery.  Travel to and from exempted or essential businesses is allowed. This means if you live in Maryland, but work in a restaurant in DC or VA, you are allowed to go to work. Click here for the full order. The 26 previously signed Executive Orders also remain in effect. 
A person who knowingly and willfully violates this Order is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to imprisonment not exceeding one year or a fine not exceeding $5,000 or both. 
Governor Hogan also shared updated small business support opportunities. He has authorized an additional $2 million to the state’s COVID-19 Layoff Aversion Fund, bringing this fund to a total of $9 million. Click here to view grants and loans available for Maryland small businesses.
