Legislative Update: HEALTH CRISIS

From Speaker Adrienne Jones

Coronavirus Resources

State leaders are working harder than ever to meet the needs of Marylanders who are struggling in these uncertain times. The State has taken several actions and has put programs in place so no one has to face the challenges caused by the coronavirus alone. Below, you will find links to a few resources to better support residents throughout this public health crisis. A full list of State resources is available HERE.

The Governor’s Executive Orders directed most of us to stay at home to stop the spread of the coronavirus. However, there are many other orders in place in response to COVID-19 like stopping evictions, banning price gouging and expanding health services. As this rapidly changing situation continues to unfold, we anticipate additional orders from the Governor’s Office to keep us safe and secure. Get the full list of executive orders, and stay up-to-date with the latest COVID-19 information here.

Unemployment Insurance claims have skyrocketed across the country as non-essential businesses temporarily close their doors. Maryland is no different, and workers across the state are feeling the strain of business closures. If you lost your job or are unable to work due to the coronavirus, click here to apply for unemployment insurance. The Maryland Department of Labor is receiving thousands of new applications per day. Applicants may experience longer processing times than usual or difficulties connecting with a representative over the phone. If you are having issues contacting the department and need assistance, email

Health Insurance is critical in keeping individuals healthy and essential during a public health emergency. Maryland Health Connection has created a special open enrollment period through April 15 so uninsured Marylanders can get covered. If you need health insurance, click here to enroll.

The Business Community could feel the greatest financial impact as a result of the coronavirus. In response, the State has put resources in place to help alleviate the burden for business owners and provide more information on topics like essential vs non-essential business status, employer and worker assistance programs and tax benefits. Find out more information about how to protect your business and help employees here.

Food Insecurity is a challenge that students often face with extended school closures. For some, school is the only way to get free or reduced-priced, healthy meals. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is available and fully operational at a time where many students risk going hungry. To find a free meal site near you, click here.
