ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced limits to operating hours and capacity for businesses amid a surge in coronavirus cases. Hogan said the response is needed because the state is “in a war, and the virus is winning.” The Republican governor says the virus has been around for so long that too many people have become numb to the case spikes announced every day. Restaurants and bars will have to close at 10 p.m. beginning Friday. Hogan also says retail and other businesses will be limited to 50% capacity starting Friday at 5 p.m.
