There is no longer a statewide mask mandate in Maryland.  Face coverings are still required on public transportation, and in schools, child care and health care settings.  The Maryland Department of Health strongly recommends that all non-vaccinated individuals over the age of 2 continue to wear face coverings in all indoor settings outside of their home and in outdoor settings when physical distancing cannot be maintained.  Visit for more information on getting vaccinated.
