NEWS on COVID-19 in Maryland: Maryland Gov. Hogan issues new restrictions on nonessential travel to fight coronavirus spread during holidays

“As Christmas approaches, Gov. Larry Hogan told Marylanders to limit travel to essential purposes only, saying the holidays will be a critical time in the fight against the spread of coronavirus.

Under an emergency order, state residents who travel outside Maryland — and anyone who travels to Maryland — must either obtain a negative COVID-19 test result or quarantine for 10 days.

‘Our message today is simple: You are safer at home for the holidays this year,’ Hogan said at a news conference Thursday in Annapolis. ‘It will save lives.’

The season’s traditions — family visits, time with friends and other socializing — are the kinds of activities that contact tracing shows ‘are the most dangerous things we can do,’ the Republican governor said.” [...]

“‘If you don’t have to travel, please don’t,’ said Gregory Slater, the state’s transportation secretary.”
