Governor Hogan appeared on CNN, FOX News, and NPR to discuss the aggressive and unprecedented actions he’s taking to stop the spread of the coronavirus in Maryland, the National Capital Region, and across the country.
With coronavirus cases in the National Capital Region more than quadrupling in recent days, Governor Hogan took the unprecedented step of issuing a Stay at Home order for all Marylanders on Monday. Only hours later, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser followed suit and announced similar orders. Governor Hogan is sounding the alarm that the Washington metropolitan area appears to be “just two weeks behind New York,” putting at risk more than 400,000 federal workers and “mission critical” employees for the coronavirus response at agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and FEMA.
Governor Hogan also authored a joint bipartisan op-ed in The Washington Post with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, outlining five key steps the federal government can take to support governors on the front lines of this crisis. As chair of the National Governors Association, Governor Hogan is continuing to help coordinate the bipartisan national response to the pandemic — leading a sixth call with the President, Vice President, and the nation’s governors just yesterday.
