On Monday, Governor Larry Hogan announced that the state’s massive contact tracing operation was set to begin, with the ability to track 1,000 cases and 10,000 contacts daily.  Baltimore County is partnering with CCBC to launch a contract tracing operation as well.  Some experts have voiced concern over the privacy aspects of such measures.

Last week, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced that the county would not yet be fully initiating Phase 1 of the Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery.  Governor Hogan’s stay-at-home order expired at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15, and some businesses and churches were allowed to begin the reopening process.

Harford County reopened to the extent allowed by Phase 1 of the Roadmap to Recovery at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15th.
