City and state leaders had urged the pastor to suspend services in order to stem the spread of COVID-19 cases in the area.

In Charles County, Maryland, a man was arrested and held without bond after hosting two parties at his home. He was charged with two counts of violating the governor’s executive order, an offense punishable by up to one year of incarceration and a $5,000 fine.
