Earlier this week, Governor Larry Hogan ordered Maryland bars and restaurants to close at 10 p.m. and reduced capacity at local businesses, despite a recent military study published in the New England Journal of Medicine which shows that lockdowns and quarantines have no effect when it comes to stopping the spread of viruses.  A newly released Danish study also shows that masks and/or face coverings do very little to protect the wearer.

Pfizer, meanwhile, will seek emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration on Friday, two days after announcing its COVID-19 vaccine is 95% effective.  The vaccine was developed in record time as part of the Trump Administration’s Operation: Warp Speed.  Vaccines could begin as soon as next month.

“Maryland is seeing spiking COVID-19 metrics like we haven’t seen since the spring, and we’re going to need bipartisan action at the federal, state, and local levels in order to save lives,” said Governor Hogan on Friday.
