Almost a year to the day after he imposed a COVID-19 emergency order, Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) on Tuesday lifted most of the state’s restrictions on economic activity. The order takes effect Friday at 5 p.m. The move means capacity limits on restaurants — both indoor and outdoor dining — will be lifted, though patrons must be seated, and tables must be at least six feet apart. The order also lifts limits on retail businesses, religious facilities, casinos, fitness centers, hair and nail salons, and indoor recreational establishments — including bingo halls, bowling alleys, pool halls and skating rinks.
