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.

From coverage on the Fox 45 website:

“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.
