Maryland and Virginia Governors Prohibit Events with More Than Ten People

Governor Ralph Northam (D., Va.) and Governor Larry Hogan (R., Md.) each issued orders today in their respective states banning almost all gatherings with more than ten people in order to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
