From the Introduction: "Over the last two months, Governor Hogan has taken a series of early, unprecedented, and aggressive actions to protect the health and safety of Marylanders and to 'flatten the curve' of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] outbreak. Thanks to these decisive actions, as well as the selflessness, courage, and grit of Marylanders, our State appears to be achieving this urgent goal. Although we still have a long and difficult road ahead, Maryland's approach is working: blunting the worst potential infection rates, saving thousands of lives, and preventing the overwhelming of our healthcare system resources. As a result of this success, Maryland is now able to begin shifting from the mitigation phase to the recovery phase of our coronavirus response. Early on, Governor Hogan convened a team of experts, some of whom wrote the top authoritative guides for reopening. After weeks of extensive consultations with these top experts and with a diverse group of business leaders, organized labor leaders and economists, Governor Hogan has set targeted and evidence-based guideposts for Maryland's path to recovery."
