ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland is opening six new hospital-based COVID-19 testing sites.

The other locations are TidalHealth in Wicomico County; Garrett Regional Medical Center in Garrett County; Holy Cross Germantown Hospital in Montgomery County; Howard County General Hospital; and University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Anne Arundel County.

Hogan also announced plans to distribute 20 million masks around the state.
