Maryland’s stay at home order expires Friday (May 15) at 5 p.m., but some mayors and county leaders are enforcing rules of their own.
Baltimore City Mayor Jack Young announced Thursday (May 14) afternoon that the city will remain under a stay at home order until data and science dictate when it’s safe to reopen.
“I don’t feel comfortable sending residents including young children and older adults back out into the public and this time,” Young announced. He went on to say the city is in dire need of more testing sites in order to reopen without putting residents at risk.
In the meantime, Young is using the power of music to encourage Baltimoreans to stay safe. On Wednesday (May 13), he declared “Mask Up,” a song by local rapper Chink OTR, Baltimore’s official COVID-19 anthem.
