This week, Governor Larry Hogan and the City of Baltimore announced the lifting of the mask mandate.

“I’ll probably still wear mine to respect others,” said Durrell Loney.

“It depends on each person, right? So, for me, it depends on each person, but it is lovely to see people smile,” said Laura Flynn.

Lura Bobbitt said she hopes the City takes a more cautious approach to reopening.
