Last week, the governor announced that enforcement units would be deployed in every county throughout the state to make sure the renewed COVID-19 restrictions were followed.
According to state police, most Marylanders appear to be adhering to the rules.
State Police visited more than 730 restaurants and bars overnight.
Troopers filed no charges, and only issued a minimal number of warning for people in businesses who weren’t wearing face coverings or social distancing.
Maryland – like much of the United States – is mired with a resurgence of COVID-19.
The state is currently registering a positivity rate of 6.38% - putting it squarely in the red zone.
In response the governor renewed capacity and hours limits on restaurants and bars, and shut down many entertainment venues.
Caps on gatherings were also re-introduced.
