Hogan to announce more actions against virus today

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is scheduled to announce more actions against a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The governor will make the announcement Tuesday afternoon at a news conference in Annapolis.

The state reported 2,149 more virus cases Tuesday morning. Maryland has had at least 1,000 cases for 14 straight days.

The number of hospitalizations are up to 1,046. That’s an increase of 61 from the previous day.

The state also reported 26 deaths in a 24-hour period. Maryland has had a total of 4,186 deaths from the coronavirus.

Last week, Hogan announced a reduction for indoor operations for bars and restaurants from 75% to 50%.

State health officials also issued a public health advisory last week strongly discouraging indoor gatherings of more than 25 people.
