The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have reached the U.S. state of Maryland in March 2020. The first three cases of the virus were reported in Montgomery County on March 5, 2020. As of December 4,2021, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) reported 592,479 positive cases, 11,022 confirmed deaths, 11,585 patients released from isolation, 4,304,197 have been administered first COVID-19 vaccine doses (equivalent to 71% of the population), 3,797,484 have been administered second doses (equivalent to 63% of the population), and 321,146 have been administered a single dose vaccine (equivalent to 5% of the population). [3]

Timeline

In late January 2020, Maryland hospitals began travel screening for coronavirus when taking in new patients entering the emergency room. [4] State health officials announced on January 30, 2020 that the first person tested in Maryland for the novel coronavirus did not have the virus. Fran Phillips, deputy state health secretary for public health services, stated that the risk for Maryland residents of contracting the virus remained low. Maryland medical facilities, educational institutions, and businesses disseminated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Towson University stated that a professor would not return to classes while a family member was tested. [5]

On March 5, Governor Larry Hogan confirmed the first three cases of coronavirus in Montgomery County: one married couple in their 70s and an unrelated woman in her 50s. [6] [7] [8] [9] All three patients were on the same river cruise on the Nile River in Egypt. Upon their return, one of the patients traveled to suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, meeting with students. This prompted the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Central Bucks School District to temporarily close three schools in that district to undergo cleaning. Another patient visited The Village at Rockville retirement community for an event that had between 70 and 100 people. Attendees of the event were told to monitor their temperature and call their physician or the Maryland Emergency Management Agency if they began to exhibit symptoms. [10] All three patients had fully recovered by March 12. [11] Hogan declared a state of emergency after announcing the state's first positive tests. [12] [13]

By March 12, twelve cases of coronavirus had been confirmed in Maryland — two remained hospitalized and three had recovered. Importantly, Maryland confirmed the state's first known case of community transmission in a Prince George's County resident with no known exposure to coronavirus through travel or an infected individual. The first case of community transmission indicates that "we are entering a new phase of working to mitigate and limit the spread of this pandemic," reported Hogan. [14] On March 12, Karen Salmon, Maryland's Superintendent of Schools, announced that all public schools would be closed for two weeks beginning March 16. [15] Hogan raised the state's emergency activation system to activate the Maryland National Guard and banned gatherings of more than 250 people. [14] The National Guard was activated to a higher state of readiness. [16] Hogan delegated routine state government operations to Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford so he could allocate more time to combating the virus. [15]

Hogan ordered all of the state's casinos, racetracks, and off-track betting to cease operations on March 15, with the shutdown beginning on March 16 at 12:01 am. [17] In addition, Hogan also warned in a statement that bars and restaurants are to follow the ban of gatherings of over 250 people in advance of St. Patrick's Day celebrations. He stated that if any bar or restaurant failed to comply with the restrictions set, they would be charged with a misdemeanor carrying a penalty of one year in jail and/or up to $5,000 in fines. [18]

In the afternoon, the Howard County Health Department announced the county's first confirmed coronavirus case: an 82-year-old woman with an underlying condition who resided at the Lorien Elkridge, a nursing home in Elkridge. The MDH initiated the process of contacting and notifying all staff, residents, and family members about the possible exposure to COVID-19 in the nursing home. Six medics were exposed to the woman not knowing that she was a COVID-19 patient; all six medics went into self-quarantine, according to the Howard County fire chief. This case brings the total number of positive cases to 32 for the state. [19] [20]

Hogan held a press conference in the late morning of March 16, where he announced an executive order that would require all bars, restaurants, gyms, and movie theaters in the state to close at 5:00  Restaurants with delivery, drive-thru, and carry out services are exempt from closing completely. [21] [22]

On the morning of March 17, the MDH confirmed 20 additional positive cases in the state, including the first case in Frederick County. Only two of the three cases announced by Howard County on March 16 were added to the MDH's total figure for the day. The additional case announced by Baltimore Mayor Jack Young was also not included in the totals. The official figure from the MDH was now 57. [23] Hogan announced an executive order that postponed the Maryland primary elections. [24] A series of restrictions and cuts surrounding transportation were also announced on March 17. [25] [26]

For the first time since the Civil War, the Maryland General Assembly's annual session ended early, due to coronavirus concerns. The session, which usually runs for 90 days, was ended three weeks earlier than normal on March 18. In the time before the session was hurriedly ended, many coronavirus legislation measures were passed, including the authorization to draw up to $100 million from the "rainy day" fund and extending temporary unemployment benefits for workers who are either quarantined or whose jobs are closed temporarily. The Assembly also passed legislation that makes price gouging and firing workers for being quarantined illegal in the state. All legislation would have to be signed by Governor Hogan to be made law, but would take effect immediately. [27]

A Prince George's County man in his 60s was announced to be the first death in Maryland on March 18. The man contracted the coronavirus through community transmission and had an underlying health problem. [28]

On the morning of March 19, Hogan announced that all shopping centers and entertainment venues were to close as of 5:00 pm that day, stating "This is a race against time" and he's doing everything he can to "avoid shutting down society". [29] He also announced access to the BWI Airport terminals would be restricted to employees, ticketed passengers, and visitors assisting disabled passengers. [30] On March 23, Hogan ordered all non-essential businesses in the state to close effective at 5:00 pm Monday to prevent further spread of COVID-19. He also announced initiatives to provide relief to small businesses and employees. [31] [32]

On March 25, the Maryland Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Karen B. Salmon, announced the extension of the Maryland school closure from March 30 to April 26, adding on an extra 4 weeks to the school cancellation. [33]

On March 29, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Maryland continued to rise, reaching over 1,000. [3] Deaths also continued. [34] On March 30, Governor Hogan issued a mandatory stay-at-home order, effective beginning at 8:00 pm EDT that evening. The Governor also required all individuals who have recently traveled out of the state to self quarantine for 14 days. [35] [36] Violation of the order would be punishable by a prison sentence of up to one year and/or a $5,000 fine. A wireless alert was also sent to all mobile devices in the state. [37] Virginia's Governor Ralph Northam and the District of Columbia's Mayor Muriel Bowser issued similar orders on the same day (see COVID-19 pandemic in Virginia and in Washington, D.C.). [38]

On April 2, Maryland confirmed cases of COVID-19 surpassed 2,000 to at least 2,331, 346 new from the previous day; five more people had died, bringing the state's death toll to 36. Of the total confirmed cases, 71% were patients younger than 60. [39] In a request to the federal government, Maryland state asked for more than a million masks, gloves and face shields, and 15,000 body bags. Per released FEMA documents, the state received 138 of 200 requested ventilators, about a third of the 778,129 face masks it requested, just 110,240 of the 421,532 N95 respirator masks it sought, well fewer than half of the 330,540 requested gloves and none of the 100,000 testing swabs it hoped to acquire to test for the virus, nor their requested body bags. "Overall, the oversight committee said FEMA had distributed fewer than 10% of the N95 masks and less than 1% of gloves sought collectively by Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia." [40]

On April 15, Governor Hogan announced an executive order requiring masks or face coverings in all Maryland grocery stores and pharmacies and on public transportation, effective on April 18, 7:00 AM. [41] On April 17, State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Karen Salmon, after extensive consultation with the State Board of Education and leading public health experts in the state, extended the closure of schools through May 15. [42] On April 18, Governor Larry Hogan announced the state had purchased 500,000 test kits for $9.46 million from South Korea. [43] [44] A Korean Air jet arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Airport with the delivery from LabGenomics. [45] However they turned out to be flawed and were never used. The Hogan administration quietly paid the same South Korean company another $2.5 million for 500,000 replacement tests. [43] On April 24, Hogan announced his "Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery" to slowly lift restrictions and open businesses. The roadmap is a three-stage plan using federal guidelines, National Governors Association guidance, and AEI and Johns Hopkins reports. [46]

On May 1, Hogan announced a Centers for Disease Control field team was dispatched to Wicomico County to increase testing in the area due to the increase of COVID-19 among poultry workers. Wicomico County had the fourth highest COVID-19 case rate in the state, per capita, higher than both Baltimore Baltimore City and County. [47] [48] A two-day drive thru testing site was set up at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium to focus on poultry workers. [49]

On May 6, Hogan announced that effective May 7, safe outdoor activities are allowed such as golf, tennis, boating, fishing, camping, and other activities, although he cautioned that it was still "critical for Marylanders to continue practicing physical distancing." [50] Additionally, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) issued guidelines to allow elective procedures to resume at the discretion of local hospitals and health care providers. [51] State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Karen Salmon announced the closure of all Maryland Public Schools for the remainder of the 2019 - 2020 academic school year. [52] On May 15, effective at 5:00 pm the "stay-at-home" order was lifted and limited non-essential businesses reopened. However, some jurisdictions continued their "stay-at-home" restrictions including Baltimore City, Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. [53]

On June 3, Hogan announced Stage 2 of the reopening plan would be effective June 5 at 5:00 pm. [54] On July 29, Hogan expanded his previous face covering order. Effective July 31 at 5:00 pm everyone older than 5 years old must wear face coverings inside all buildings where the public has access, on any public transportation, outside when unable to socially distance, obtaining healthcare services, engaged in work in any area where interaction with others is likely (including commercial office space), and where food is prepared and/or packaged. [55] [56]

On August 16, the state became the 19th state to surpass 100,000 cases. [57] On September 1, Hogan placed the state in Stage 3, effective September 4 at 5:00 pm. [58] On November 10, Hogan implemented restrictions, some similar to Stage 2, effective November 11 at 5:00 pm. Restaurants will be limited to 50% capacity, from 75%. Indoor gatherings of more than 25 people are strongly discouraged. State employees who can telework are required to begin. The restrictions were imposed on the same day Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin MD moved back to distance learning effective November 11 as a result of positive COVID-19 cases on school. Baltimore and Montgomery County imposed even stricter measures. [59] [60] On November 17, Hogan implemented additional restrictions, similar to Stage 2, effective November 20 at 5:00 pm. Restaurants will be required to close at 10:00 pm each evening for dine in service. Retail, organizations, religious organizations, fitness centers, and similar will be restricted to 50% capacity. Hospital and Nursing Home visitation is suspended. [61]

On December 1, Governor Hogan made numerous medical staffing announcements, including the launch of MarylandMedNow, a portal to recruit medical job seekers, urging colleges and universities to award credit to those with hand-on work experience in healthcare during the pandemic and allowing early graduation for those who have met all graduation requirements and are in their final semester. [62] On December 14, the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines began to arrive in Maryland. [63] On December 17, Governor Hogan implemented additional restrictions including reducing gatherings from 25 to 10 persons, advising against out of state travel, and adding required testing or quarantine after out of state travel. [64]

On January 1, 2021, Maryland reported the second second-highest tally for new daily coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, at 3,557. [65] On January 12, 2021, two confirmed cases of a new, more contagious SARS-CoV-2 variant from the United Kingdom were reported in Maryland. The patients are a married couple in Anne Arundel County, one of whom had a traveling history to the United Kingdom. [66]

On June 15, 2021, Governor Hogan announced that Maryland's COVID-19 state of emergency will end on July 1, 2021. [67] As of that date all remaining state level restrictions, including mask requirements in schools and medical facilities, will end.

Reopening stages

On April 24, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan announced his "Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recover" [68] plan that illustrates three stages in re-opening the state. The plan uses federal guidelines, National Governors Association guidance, and AEI and Johns Hopkins reports. [69]

Stage 1 (May 2020)

Stage 1 involves reopening activities considered low risk. Effective Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:00 pm Hogan lifted the "stay at home" order, more than 45 days after the order was initially announced. “The fight against this deadly disease is far from over" but "Maryland and our nation can now at least begin to slowly recover,” Hogan said. [70] Although the stay at home order was lifted, the state would be moving instead toward a Safer-at-Home public health advisory. Hogan encouraged residents to practice social distancing and to continuing to wear face coverings when inside stores or on public transportation, as outlined in his previous Face Covering Order. Certain businesses reopened on May 15, including most retail establishments (at 50% capacity or less, and not enclosed shopping malls), manufacturing operations, religious facilities (at 50% capacity), personal services including barber shops and salons (at 50% capacity). All businesses opening are subject to local regulation. Gatherings larger than 10 persons remain prohibited. Restaurants, bars, fitness centers, theaters, malls, other non-essential businesses, and other recreational facilities remain closed.

Howard and Frederick counties enacted modified version of the first stage. Baltimore City, Montgomery and Prince George's Counties continued their stay-at-home restrictions. [53] Montgomery & Prince George's Counties started stage 1 on June 1, 2020. [71] Baltimore City did not start Stage 1 until June 8, 2020 - by which point many other places of the state were already in Stage 2. [72]

With various counties initiating the rollout of Stage 1 in different ways and at different times. Many residents of the state were unsure what applied to where they lived. Frederick County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rick Weldon described the roll out of stage one as "slightly confusing." [73]

Effective Friday, May 29, 2020 at 5:00 pm Hogan initiated the final reopenings in Stage 1. It included outdoor dining for restaurants and social organizations - such as American Legion, Elk Clubs, or VFWs. Additionally, youth sports, youth day camps, outdoor pools and drive-in movie theaters were included. Restaurants must follow all public health requirements outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, and the National Restaurant Association, including things such as maintaining appropriate distance, limited seating, and proper sanitizing between customers. [74] Limited outdoor gym and fitness classes, and limited outdoor religious gatherings were also permitted to resume. [75]

Stage 2 (June 2020)

Stage 2 involves reopening activities considered medium risk. Effective Friday, June 5, 2020 at 5:00 pm Hogan announced the state will begin moving into Stage 2, allowing many nonessential businesses to reopen, and state agencies will return to normal operations the following Monday. Hogan said in a press conference, “Moving into Stage 2 does not mean this crisis is behind us." He still encouraged residents to continue to practice social distancing and wear face masks while inside. These lifted restrictions are still subject to local jurisdiction. At this point, Baltimore City still has the "stay at home" order in place. [76] Montgomery and Prince George's counties also are not moving forward with Stage 2 at this time. [77] Under this executive order large and small retail shops, specialty vendors, wholesalers, warehouses, banks, real estate offices, travel agencies, auto dealers, tattoo parlors and showrooms are all able to resume operations. However, social, community, recreational, leisure, and sporting gatherings and events of more than 10 are still prohibited. [78] Additionally, senior centers, indoor service at restaurants and bars, fitness centers, theaters, indoor malls, and other indoor recreation such as pool halls, bowling alleys, mini golf, and social clubs must remain closed. [79]

Effective Friday June 12, 2020, at 5:00 pm, Hogan initiated additional reopenings in Stage 2. [80] It included indoor service at restaurants, at 50% capacity, and outdoor amusements. Effective Friday June 19, at 5:00 pm, arcades, bingo halls, bowling alleys, casinos, indoor gyms, malls, roller rinks, social clubs, and studio fitness were permitted to reopen. [81]

Stage 3 (September 2020)

Stage 3 involves reopening activities considered high risk. This stage originally was set to require an FDA approved vaccine that was widely available, however Governor Hogan placed the state in Stage 3 effective September 4, 2020 at 5:00 pm. [82] In Stage 3 all businesses are permitted to be open. Movie theaters and live entertainment are restricted to 50% capacity, or up to 100 people at indoor venues and 250 at outdoor venues. [58]

Effective September 21, 2020, Hogan expanded capacity of indoor dining at restaurants from 50% to 75%. [83]

Effective October 1, 2020, Hogan resumed permitting indoor visitation at nursing homes, as long as there is not a COVID-19 outbreak at the nursing home, and the county's positivity rate is less than 10%. [84] Additionally, child care centers are permitted to return to their full licensed capacity.

Effective March 12, 2021, Hogan lifted capacity limits for indoor and outdoor dining, retail, religious facilities, fitness centers, personal services, and indoor recreation. In addition, Hogan expanded capacity for large indoor and outdoor venues including conference venues, wedding venues, concert venues, conventions, theaters, racing venues, and sports venues to 50%. Hogan also lifted quarantine requirements and restrictions for out-of-state travel. [85] Some counties and municipalities continue to have restrictions in place, such as the City of Salisbury's residential gathering limit. [86]

Effective May 15, 2021, Hogan lifted all remaining restrictions on businesses, restaurants, and other venues. He also lifted the majority of the face covering mandate, except for the requirement to wear a face covering in schools, health care settings, and public transportation per CDC guidelines. [87]

Vaccination timelines

Maryland is distributing the vaccines using a phased approach, based on relative risk of exposure or developing serious illness. [88] [89]

Government response

Primary and secondary schools

2019-2020 school year

On March 12, 2020, Karen Salmon, Superintendent of the Maryland State Department of Education, announced that all Maryland public schools were to be closed from March 16 through March 27, 2020. [14] Superintendent Salmon announced on March 25, 2020 an extended four-week closure, until April 24; Governor Hogan added that the additional four-week closure was "somewhat aspirational" and they would reassess the situation in that time. [91] [92] On April 17, 2020, Superintendent Salmon, after consultation with the State Board of Education and public health experts, extended the closure of Maryland public schools through May 15. [42] On May 6, 2020, Superintendent Salmon announced that schools would remain closed for the remainder of the 2019–20 academic school year. [52]

2020-2021 school year

The Maryland State Department of Education granted authority to the individual county Boards of Education to develop a recovery plan consistent with the state's Maryland Together: Maryland's Recovery Plan for Education. Counties were required to complete and post to their websites a recovery plan by August 14, 2020. The plans must include various requirements, such as equity in instruction, stakeholder groups, and standards. [93] Many boards developed a three-stage plan, with stage one being remote learning, stage two a hybrid of remote and in-class, and stage three a full return to class. [94] Harford County Public Schools began the school year in the remote stage with "Learning Resource Centers" as a place for children needing supervision during the day to receive it, along with internet access and breakfast and lunch. [95] The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association postponed the fall and winter 2020 sports seasons. [96]

On August 27, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan announced that all schools in Maryland can safely reopen. "I am announcing that as a result of our improved health metrics, every single county school system in the state of Maryland is now fully authorized to begin safely reopening," Hogan said. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Karen Salmon said she strongly encourages local school systems to reevaluate their mode of instruction at the end of the first quarter, and that the State of Maryland has $10 million in grant funding available to help systems that are able to move toward in-person instruction. [97] Maryland School Superintendents had been requesting guidelines for reopening from Dr. Salmon, since June. [98] The Public School Superintendents' Association of Maryland President, Talbot County Superintendent Kelly Griffith, said "The governor’s health metrics and guidelines for reopening schools come far too late in the process of planning for the coming school year, which begins Sept. 8. Every school system was required to submit its plans for instruction for the coming months by Aug. 14, and school districts had already made a decision to go online." [98]

On September 24, 2020, Governor Hogan announced that fall sports were authorized to resume on October 7. [99]

Many school districts in Maryland opened in a virtual mode, shifting some or all grade levels to hybrid in late September to mid-October, 2020. All districts reverted to virtual by early December 2020 due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

After the holiday break, some school systems, such as Worcester County, originally planned to return to hybrid instruction despite health metrics exceeding state recommendations. [134] However, on the Sunday prior to in-person instruction resuming, the local health department asked the school system not to open. [135]

On January 21, Governor Larry Hogan and State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Karen Salmon called on all Maryland school systems to return to hybrid instruction—a combination of in-person and virtual learning—no later than Monday, March 1.
