Today, March 30, Maryland's Governor Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order, strengthening an Executive Order he had issued previously. Read the full text of the Executive Order here.
The stay-at-home order expands the state's efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the order means that household members should remain in the home and should only leave for essential errands.
Valid reasons to leave the home include, but are not limited to:
Grocery shopping
Going to a pharmacy
Visiting a healthcare provider
Exercising outside with practicing social distancing (e.g. jogging or walking, NOT playing team sports)
A full list of permitted activities can be found on p. 3 of the full Executive Order. 

Baltimore Immigration Summit POSTPONED until Spring 2021

If you submitted a proposal for a panel presentation, you will be contacted shortly. If you have any additional Summit-related questions, please contact Beth Clifford at eclifford@towson.edu
