The Maryland State Police tweeted out the following information on May 6th:
From 3/24 through 5/5, law enforcement in MD has conducted 35,785 compliance checks & responded to 3,028 calls for service related to the Governor’s Executive Order. There have been 103 people charged with violating the Governor’s Executive Order by MD law enforcement agencies.
This is from March 23rd:
CLOSURE OF ALL NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES: Governor Hogan has enacted an emergency order to close all non-essential businesses across the state, effective at 5 pm today.
- In addition to what is already closed by prior orders, this order requires the closure of anything that is not included in the new federal guidelines for critical infrastructure sectors. Interpretive Guidance from the Office of Legal Counsel. [UPDATE: Additional Guidance as of March 23 at 7 p.m.] [UPDATE: Additional Guidance as of March 24 at 6:30 p.m.]
- While this is not a shelter-in-place order, all Marylanders are urged to remain home and adhere to the governor’s guidance for social distancing. The governor announced that beginning today, further enforcement actions will be taken to disperse any gatherings in violation of the governor’s orders.
It will be interesting to see what happens going forward after the announcement today “Effective at 7AM tomorrow, the list of safe outdoor activities will be broadened to include: golf, tennis, boating, fishing, camping. Closed functions at state parks will be reopened, including all state beaches for walking and exercise, and playgrounds”.
I will have to keep a close eye on that Twitter account for future updates.
