Baltimore county will ease restrictions on retail stores, haircutting businesses friday

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. announced some restrictions will be lifted on retails stores, barbershops, and hair salons beginning at 9 a.m. Friday. Baltimore County is still prohibiting indoor and outdoor gatherings with more than 10 people at restaurants, businesses, churches, and other places where people gather, Olszewski said Thursday. Religious institutions can still hold drive-through or drive-in services. Retail stores may reopen for in-store business, but the establishments can only be filled with 10 people, including staff. Olszewski said this will apply to retail establishments that were considered nonessential under Maryland’s previous “stay-at-home” order. Read more at The Baltimore Sun.
