Governor Hogan presses county officials to enforce state orders

Date: July 15, 2020

Amid a spike in confirmed cases among younger people, Governor urges crackdown on violators

Governor Hogan sent a letter to county leaders this week urging them to enforce his executive orders, particularly those concerning bars and restaurants.

In his letter, Hogan cited increasing infection rates among young people. Marylanders under the age of 35 now have a positivity rate of COVID-19 that is 84 percent higher than Marylanders 35 and older according to his administration.

Mike O’Halloran, Maryland state director, released a statement that read in part, “We are grateful that the Governor opted for enforcement against violators instead of furthering restricting all business in a particular industry.”
