STATE OF MARYLAND UPDATE: Governor Hogan Continues to Stress Vigilance In COVID-19 Fight, State
Superintendent Sets Guardrails for Schools to Reopen

Wednesday, July 22 – Governor Larry Hogan provided an update to Marylanders on the state’s ongoing COVID-19 response and
recovery, stressing the need for continued caution and vigilance. The governor was joined by Maryland State Department of Education
(MSDE) State Superintendent Dr. Karen Salmon, who announced that MSDE will extend flexibility to local school systems to determine
re-openings while instituting guardrails and protocols for in-person instruction.

“I want to make very clear to the people of Maryland again that this crisis is not over and your actions may help determine whether we see
a resurgence of the virus here in Maryland,” said Governor Hogan. “As we have from the beginning, we will continue to follow the advice of
our doctors and public health experts, and we will not hesitate to take statewide actions if and when we deem them to be necessary.”

MONTGOMERY COUNTY UPDATE: A Message from County Executive Marc Elrich
“It is difficult to watch the number of COVID-19 cases rise around the country and even elsewhere in Maryland. More than 40 states this
week saw an increase in reported cases. Here in Montgomery County, our cases are not increasing on a daily percentage basis as they are
in other places, but they also are not declining. So I urge you to continue to follow the guidelines that are making a difference: wear a face
covering (and make sure it covers your nose and mouth), maintain physical distance and wash your hands frequently.”

Resources and guidelines for reopening can be found on the County’s Reopening web page.
