    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Sunday criticized President Joe Biden's effort to offer free at-home COVID-19 tests to Americans, claiming the plan caused issues for states already planning to purchase kits. "The president announced nearly a month ago before Christmas that he was going to distribute these half a billion rapid tests out across the country," Hogan, a Republican, said during an appearance on CBS News' "Face the Nation." "And so far we haven't seen any," he added. "We were acquiring our own, you know, the states have been on the front lines throughout this crisis. And now it appears...

    As COVID-19 hospitalizations climb into uncharted territory, fueled by the highly contagious omicron variant, Maryland’s medical work force is increasingly diminished by illness and exposure, burnout and turnover. Gov. Larry Hogan has responded with pleas for people to get vaccinated and boosted and wear masks to spare the hospitals. The state opened several testing sites near hospitals so people would stop flooding emergency rooms with nonemergencies. Hogan’s also sending Maryland National Guard troops to hospitals to perform nonmedical tasks and relaxing guardrails on licenses for medical workers, particularly nurses.
