ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan says Maryland will begin universal testing for COVID-19 in all state-run correctional and juvenile facilities.

The governor also announced Wednesday that the state is delivering more than 20,000 coronavirus tests each week to nursing homes. He says the state is distributing more than 33,000 additional swabs to local jurisdictions to help increase local testing capacity. Meanwhile, a Maryland board has approved nearly $121 million in state budget cuts in response to the negative economic impact of the coronavirus.
