Last week, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced that the county would not be fully initiating Phase One of Governor Larry Hogan’s 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.

Meanwhile, authorities are not seeing spikes in coronavirus cases in places that are reopening, but instead are seeing increases in some areas that remain closed, U.S. health secretary Alex Azar said on Sunday.

“We are seeing that in places that are opening, we’re not seeing this spike in cases,” Azar said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “We still see spikes in some areas that are, in fact, closed.”

Azar added on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that there were serious health consequences tied to not reopening.
