Governor Hogan Announces Lifting of Capacity Limits

With sustained vaccine progress and significant improvements in all of the state’s key data metrics, Governor Larry Hogan announced on March 9 that new actions will be in effect to further ease the COVID-19 mitigation measures currently in place.

“With the pace of vaccinations rapidly rising and our health metrics steadily improving, the lifting of these restrictions is a prudent, positive step in the right direction and an important part of our economic recovery,” said Governor Hogan.

Beginning Friday, March 12, capacity limits will be lifted on outdoor and indoor dining, retail businesses, religious facilities, and personal services. Large outdoor and indoor venues may operate at up to 50 percent capacity, and quarantine requirements will be lifted on out-of-state travel. Masking and distancing protocols will be maintained.
