Eighteen more Marylanders died from the virus overnight, bringing the total to 4,279.

ICU beds went down by 10 people, now at 268, while acute care beds are at 969. There are now 1,237 people hospitalized in the state.

The statewide positivity rate dropped 0.31% to 6.82% on Sunday.

In the last 24 hours, 49,895 COVID-19 tests were administered in the state.

Starting this weekend across the state, bars and restaurants have to close at 10 p.m. and are limited to 50% capacity indoors. In Baltimore City, the mayor limited capacity to 25% indoors.

Advocates for small business owners said about 50% are going to need financial assistance in the next 12 months to stay afloat.

“It’s going to be a tough pill to swallow for small businesses,” said Mike O’Halloran, NFIB.

One other precaution advised that people revise any large Thanksgiving plans this year.

“We were having relatives come from D.C. As we got closer to Thanksgiving, Bob and I both backed off,” said Pat Giroux, Baltimore City resident.

Gov. Hogan said that the Thanksgiving holiday is concerning when it comes to the potential spread of COVID-19. He referenced a recent survey which he said indicates that 90% of Marylanders have decided not to travel this weekend.
