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 limited to 10 people and churches are not yet able to begin holding worship services.  While no stay-at-home order is currently in effect in Baltimore County, the County Executive strongly urges residents to stay home and to venture out only for essential travel.

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