MARYLAND — On Monday, all courts in Maryland are now fully operational and can resume jury trials in criminal and civil cases in circuit courts statewide.

This comes after the covid metrics continues to decline in the state. "We embrace the opportunity to resume full judicial operations,” said Court of Appeals Chief Judge Joseph M. Getty.

Wearing a mask will also be voluntary and other health measures are no longer required such as entrance screening.
