Governor Larry Hogan reminds us: “As we prepare for the holiday weekend, Marylanders should continue practicing physical distancing, wearing masks when in public places, and avoiding large gatherings. Our long-term recovery can only be effective if we all continue exercising personal responsibility.

Have you seen our COVID-19 Information page? If you are coming into town for a visit, we’ll do our best to keep you updated with the current Maryland rules and requirements.

Keep your pets safe this 4th of July – a message from HART for Animals.
