Despite presidential visit, Baltimore remains under lock-down over Memorial Day holiday weekend
Baltimore Mayor Jack Young says the city remains under a stay-at-home order amid the pandemic and residents should not hold big parties over the Memorial Day weekend. The mayor says gatherings should be limited to people living in a household. Baltimore Police say they have plans in place to address violations. The mayor's comments came after he requested that President Trump reconsider his Memorial Day visit to Fort McHenry. The mayor says it would send the wrong message to residents under the stay-at-home order and tie up city resources. The White House says the president is not changing his plans. Neither Mayor Young, a Democrat, nor Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, will be on hand for the presidential visit.
