Governor Hogan Announces Stage 3, Individual Counties Still to Make Own Decisions
Per Governor Hogan’s press conference this afternoon:
Based on improving health metrics, Maryland will move into Stage Three as a state this Friday.
As with Stages One and Two, Stage Three will be implemented in multiple phases with a flexible, community-based approach that empowers individual jurisdictions to make decisions regarding the timing of reopenings. This means Montgomery County will likely make its own decision on when Stage Three begins for us.
Statewide, as of Friday 9/4 at 5pm, indoor theatres where live performances occur or motion pictures are shown may open to the general public at 50% capacity, or 100 people per auditorium—whichever is less.
Capacity for retail establishments and religious facilities may increase from 50 to 75 percent.
