Baltimore County’s requirement that you wear a mask inside public places goes into effect at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Meanwhile, County Health Officer Dr. Gregory Branch says he hopes he will have 100,000 additional COVID test take home kits by next week. He said he is working out the details of how the testing kits will be handed out.
“They will be free and we’ll be giving them out to the community and it will be multiple locations,” Dr. Branch said.
County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced Monday the at-home testing kits will be paid for with money from the American Rescue Plan. Dr. Branch said the county has been running out of the kits because of the high demand.
