ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland is lifting its outdoor mask requirement to be in line with Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Gov. Larry Hogan announced that face coverings are still required at all large ticketed venues. They also are required indoors at all public and private businesses across the state and when using public transportation. People not yet vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue wearing masks outdoors, especially when physical distancing isn’t possible. Starting Saturday, standing service may resume outdoors at bars and restaurants. All restrictions related to outdoor dining capacity and distancing will be lifted Saturday.
