Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has issued a travel advisory urging residents to avoid visiting some states with rapidly increasing cases of coronavirus and has also expanded mask-wearing requirements.

Hogan on Wednesday announced that anyone older than 5 years old will be required to wear a face covering starting at 5 p.m. Friday in all indoor public areas of businesses and buildings, including churches, offices and restaurants.
