The lifting of Maryland’s coronavirus state of emergency means the moratorium on evictions will also expire. Governor Larry Hogan signed an executive order rescinding most COVID-19 mandates on July 1st. Masks will no longer be required in all settings, including schools, camps and child care facilities. Other state rules and orders will remain in place during a 45-day grace period ending on August 15th. The transition will allow residents to renew their driver’s licenses. The freeze on evictions will also run through the middle of August.
