Governor Hogan Lifts Capacity Limits and Restrictions

As a result of the state’s rapid pace of COVID-19 vaccinations and subsequent declines in key health metrics, Governor Larry announced the lifting of all capacity restrictions on outdoor entertainment, art, and sports venues and indoor entertainment venues and conventions, and all remaining restrictions on indoor and outdoor dining effective now. In addition, masks are no longer required to be worn. “Today is the day that so many of us have been waiting for and working toward,” said Governor Hogan. “We finally do clearly see the light at the end of that tunnel. Our long, hard-fought battle against the worst global pandemic in more than a century is finally nearing an end. As we reflect on the hard work and the many sacrifices that it has taken to finally reach this point, we say thank you to the countless Marylanders who helped us get here.”

Effective now, indoor and outdoor venues including entertainment and sports venues, conventions, restaurants, bars, and the cruise terminal may resume normal operations. Additionally, following CDC guidelines, Maryland has begun vaccinating youths aged 12-15. Marylanders will be able to search for providers vaccinating adolescents at covidvax.maryland.gov.
