Commerce Launches “Masks On Maryland” Program

The Maryland Department of Commerce is asking you to do all you can in the fight against COVID-19 with its new #MasksOnMaryland program. The program features radio spots throughout the state and Washington D.C., along with robust social media messaging from prominent Marylanders encouraging everyone to properly wear masks, maintain safe physical distancing, and to adhere to CDC hygiene practices with the tagline, “Only You Can Keep Maryland Open for Business.”

The radio spots were developed by OTD and our tourism industry partners in coordination with the Maryland Department of Health and Governor Hogan’s office. Among the first announcements crafted were two produced with the Baltimore Ravens tight end starter, Mark Andrews, who urges fans to “Protect the Flock,” and Brandon Hyde, manager for the Baltimore Orioles, who encourages listeners to take the lead in keeping friends and neighbors “in the game.” Listen to the spots here, and use the hashtags #MasksOnMaryland and #MDinFocus to promote a safer Maryland.
