ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan has announced expanded surveillance of COVID-19 variants in Maryland.

Also on Tuesday, six Maryland state senators missed their morning floor session as a precaution after positive rapid tests for the coronavirus. At the start of the Senate’s morning session, Senate President Bill Ferguson announced lawmakers are waiting for more reliable polymerase chain reaction test results Tuesday evening.

Ferguson noted there had been “several positive rapid tests.” He says once lawmakers have the PCR tests, they will be able to make decisions on any alterations to operations.
