Governor Hogan speaking to media during an event today, raised his hopes that Maryland public schools would be back open in the fall, and without masks or social distancing protocols.
During a visit to the Novavax facility in Montgomery County, Governor Hogan responded to questions about the coronavirus pandemic, the vaccination effort, and related matters. His comments about the coming school year, however, may take the main attention from the day’s media coverage.
“We’re ahead of the country and I think all the schools should be open,” said Gov. Hogan.
He even said that elementary school children would not need to wear masks or socially distance even though they might not be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
