HARFORD COUNTY, MD — After Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said the state would be moving into stage three of its reopening, County Executive Barry Glassman said the plan for Harford County was to follow suit.
“Harford County’s metrics remain low, and we will continue to safely and quickly reopen to the extent permitted by Gov. Hogan effective at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, 2020," Glassman said in a statement Tuesday night.
Harford County has 2,500 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, and 67 people have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, according to the Maryland Department of Health.
Masks are still required in retail establishments, on public transit and in situations where people cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distance.
