Coronavirus Latest: Second Protest To 'Reopen Maryland' Planned For Monday Morning In Annapolis, City Says

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) -- The City of Annapolis said there will be another protest to reopen Maryland on Monday.

The City of Annapolis account tweeted Sunday afternoon that the protest would be starting at 9 a.m. and that police will be handling traffic and people should give themselves extra time to get to where they need to go.

Dozens of people rallied in downtown Annapolis Saturday, calling on Gov. Larry Hogan to remove some restrictions the state has put in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Protesters drove through the city's downtown with signs and flags calling for Maryland to be "re-opened" and for restrictions on everything from boating to attending church services to be lifted or modified.


That event was organized by a group called Reopen Maryland. According to its petition, the group wants Hogan to, "hear his constituents and immediately begin the responsible reopening of our state."

The protest was peaceful and no one was arrested.
