ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says the state will begin its second stage of reopening in response to the coronavirus. Hogan says at 5 p.m. on Friday, Maryland will lift the order requiring non-essential businesses to be closed. That will enable large and small retail shops to open, as well as wholesalers and warehouses. Offices including information technology firms, legal offices, banking and financial institutions can also open. He says personal services such as nail salons and tanning salons can reopen with 50% capacity by appointment only.
