The state limit on food in Maryland will be lifted at 5 pm on Friday.

The state limit on food in Maryland will be lifted at 5 pm on Friday.

However, at a press conference on Tuesday, Governor Larry Hogan said restaurants and bars were still restricted to seating and remote services.

The state has also lifted capacity restrictions on retail, religious, fitness centers, personal services, and indoor recreational facilities.

Hogan’s actions do not prevent the county from maintaining existing health restrictions.

The change was announced on Tuesday as Maryland sees many of its major coronavirus indicators heading in a promising direction.

The test positive rate in Maryland dropped to 3.4%. It states that Hogan is superior to the other 39 states. The Maryland case rate per 100,000 people also dropped to 12.9.

Hospitalization is also on the decline. As of Tuesday, hospitalization was 792, the lowest since November 10.

“After working on the COVID-19 pandemic for over a year, I could see the light at the end of this very long tunnel every day,” Hogan said on Tuesday.
