ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a “stay-at-home” directive in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The governor said that no Maryland resident should leave home unless it’s for an essential job or an essential reason such as getting food and medicine or seeking urgent medical attention. The order went into effect Monday night. Maryland has over 1,400 confirmed cases of the virus and 15 deaths. Hogan says people can still exercise and walk their dogs under the new order.
