The mission of Baltimore indoor masks goes nowhere. Probably at least another month, and probably no longer.
Mayor Brandon Scott said on Friday morning that despite continued improvements in COVID-19 overall numbers, vaccination, a key indicator influencing his decision on masks, remains at the required level. Announced that it is below. Therefore, the mask man date remains.
Scott said the obligation to use indoor masks would be removed when 65% of adults in the city of Baltimore were vaccinated at least for the first time.
So when does the city reach its magical 65% mark? Based on recent vaccination rates, WBAL-TV’s Kate Amara says her math may not be until mid-August, but city health commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa is still a bit optimistic. ..
Baltimore is the last jurisdiction in the state to have all kinds of mask obligations.
This update is done because Friday’s health sector figures show that most of the COVID-19 metrics continue to decline. Hospitalizations have fallen to their lowest since September, and positive rates have also fallen to a record low of 1.37%.
