"Maryland has experienced a tragic coronavirus outbreak at Pleasant View Nursing Home in Mount Airy. Multiple state agencies are on the scene and working closely with the local health department and the facility as they take urgent steps to protect additional residents and staff who may have been exposed."
The Maryland Health Connection started a new Special Enrollment Periodopen to uninsured Marylanders who need health coverage during the State of Emergency for Coronavirus (COVID-19) declared by Governor Larry Hogan. We applaud Governor Hogan and the Maryland Health Connection. In this crisis it is essential that uninsured Marylanders get coverage so that they can get the care they need -- for their safety, and for all of us.
