This comes after the CDC announced Thursday that vaccinated people could go anywhere, indoors or outdoors, without a mask.
Gov. Larry Hogan announced that he would lift all capacity restrictions as businesses around the state on Saturday, but said the indoor mask mandate would remain until 70% of the adult population received at least one dose of the vaccine. He changed his mind following the CDC announcement.
As of Friday, more than 65% of the state’s adult population received at least one dose of the vaccine. More than 2.5 million people are fully vaccinated in the state.
