Due to our citizens not following our stay home orders and not taking it serious enough, they are now enforcing our shutdowns. 

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is no longer asking.

We as residents are now being directed to stay home. This will help us avoid a larger outbreak of the Coronavirus.  “It was time,” Hogan said this week, “to take more aggressive action.”

Authorities  are not playing anymore and will start charging people who don’t follow these rules. They already have charged at least two people recently because of  violating bans on public gatherings of more than 10 people which can result in a year in jail, a $5,000 fine, or both.

The common question is being asked by many , “Well what are the limits? What can we do then ? Can we walk our dogs? Can we go to the grocery store?.” 

In the opinion of many we should stay home unless it is essential , all of the businesses which are not essential have shut down as of now . The more we abide these rules the better it will be on the rapid spread of this virus to keep everyone safe.
