MARYLAND – Governor Larry Hogan has issued an order closing all non-essential businesses throughout the state of Maryland in an effort to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.

The order goes into effect Monday at 5 p.m. and lasts indefinitely.

Hogan says the order does not include a stay-at-home or shelter in place order, but he urged residents to practice social distancing and to stay home whenever possible.

His announcement comes after Governor John Carney issued a stay-at-home order in Delaware on Sunday. He also closed non-essential businesses throughout the state of Delaware.
