Howard County to align with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s order in removing outdoor mask mandate

April 30, 2021

Howard County will be aligning with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s latest announcement to lift outdoor mask requirements, said Howard County Executive Calvin Ball during a news conference Thursday. On Wednesday, Hogan announced Marylanders would no longer need to wear masks in most outdoor settings, but that the statewide mask mandate still exists for large outdoor venues as well as indoor businesses. Hogan’s announcement came after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance earlier this week that said vaccinated people don’t need to wear masks in the vast majority of outdoor settings.
