This week brought news of a little more leeway for restaurants as state and local officials slowly loosen Covid-19 restrictions. Starting Monday, local bars and restaurants will be allowed to stay open past 10 p.m., ending a curfew that was instituted in November during a spike in coronavirus cases. Gov. Larry Hogan announced the decision Thursday, saying the state is ready for the step after seeing drops in Covid-19 positivity rates, case rates and hospitalizations since the holiday season surge.
