BALTIMORE — Associated Builders and Contractors of Greater Baltimore postponed an event Thursday, in which Governor Larry Hogan was scheduled to attend.

The Governor was supposed to tour the organization's new 25,000 square foot Construction Education Academy, at the Hoen Lithograph Complex
on E. Biddle Street, which includes 11 classrooms and seven labs training in the electrical, plumbing, carpentry, and HVAC professions.

Officials were forced to call off the event due to some ABC staff who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

No one tested positive, as the move was made out of an abundance of caution.

In 2019 alone, ABC says they've provided training for more than 2500 people.

Upon completing their program, attendees receive 24 college credits through Community College of Baltimore County and Baltimore City Community College.

A future makeup date hasn't yet been announced.
