Earlier this week, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced that the county would not be fully initiating Phase 1 of Governor Larry Hogan’s Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery.

Governor Hogan’s stay-at-home order expired at 5 p.m. on Friday and some businesses and churches were allowed to begin the reopening process.

Olszewski, however, announced that Baltimore County would have a limited reopening.  Gatherings are still limited to 10 people and churches may not yet begin holding worship services.  While no stay-at-home order is currently in effect in Baltimore County, the County Executive strongly advises that residents stay home and only venture out for essential travel.

Baltimore County Councilman Todd Crandell on Friday drafted legislation revoking the County Executive’s emergency authority to restrict, among other things, religious worship. Council members were requested to convene an emergency session, however only Councilman David Marks and Councilman Wade Kach committed to the session.

Harford County, meanwhile, reopened to the extent allowed by Phase 1 of the Roadmap to Recovery at 5 p.m. on Friday.
