Maryland businesses can operate at full capacity starting this week. Gov. Larry Hogan (R-Md.) announced on Tuesday that capacity limits for restaurants, bars, retail and gyms will be lifted starting Friday at 5 p.m.

Both indoor and outdoor dining can resume at 100 percent capacity. However, large venues including weddings, concerts and theaters, will be limited to 50 percent.

“Many of us have been recalling our lasts, you know the last time we ate inside of a restaurant, the last time we celebrated a big occasion with family and friends, the last time we went to a ball game, the last time we took a family vacation,” Hogan stated. “In the weeks and months ahead with continued vigilance, together we will instead begin to mark new firsts.”
