Gov. Larry Hogan has announced that starting Thursday, indoor visitation may begin in nursing homes that are not experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks or positive cases.
In addition, Maryland child care facilities will now be operating at full capacity. Since July, centers allowed no more than 15 individuals per room.
Now facilities may accommodate up to 20 three-year-olds and four-year-olds, or 30 school age children per room.
Maryland State Schools Superintendent Karen Salmon says she hopes this will complement school reopening efforts.
