Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott announced sweeping new COVID-19 restrictions Wednesday during his first press conference since being inaugurated.
The restrictions are the city’s toughest since March.
Standing in front of City Hall, Scott said hospitals will be overwhelmed with patients if the city does not act now.
“The health and safety of Baltimoreans is my top priority,” he said. “I will not waver or hesitate to make decisions that save lives in Baltimore.”
