"Masks On Maryland" is officially up-and-running and the Maryland Department of Commerce is encouraging participation from residents and visitors alike.
The new statewide campaign, which promotes social distancing, face coverings, and CDC hygiene practices, includes a series of announcements being aired throughout the state on local radio stations, as well as social media outreach through #MasksOnMaryland.
The efforts – coordinated by Maryland Commerce's Office of Tourism and several partners – include appearances by local Baltimore Orioles and Ravens representatives, in support of the state's travel and hospitality industry that has experienced hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The actions of Maryland residents were instrumental in flattening the curve this spring and allowed our State to respond in a proactive manner,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Everyone is reminded that only you can keep Maryland open for business.”
