Guidance: REMEMBER TO CONTINUE TO PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING. This guidance provided from the Governor yesterday: “We are URGING Marylanders to STAY HOME as much as possible. If you don’t need to leave your neighborhood, you should not leave your neighborhood”. This would include kids play dates and social gatherings at each others homes.

The Washington Post has some interesting (albeit not totally up to date) tracking information for the DMV area (https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/local/dc-maryland-virginia-coronavirus-cases/?itid=lk_inline_manual_4)

This is a good site to keep up to date with the latest coronavirus announcements worldwide:  (Worldometer) https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ or (Johns Hopkins) https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html.
